Urge LivingSocial to Cancel Cruel Ringling Bros. Promotion!

Update: Despite receiving information from PETA about Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus' long history of animal abuse, online deal site LivingSocial continues to promote the cruel circus through an online ticket deal. More than 100,000 people have asked LivingSocial to cancel all Ringling Bros. promotions, but the company continues to promote the baby elephant beaters! Please contact LivingSocial today and let it know you won't be using its services until it halts all cruel circus promotions and pledges never to support them in the future.

Ringling has a lengthy history of animal abuse and neglect and was fined $270,000 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for dozens of violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act. According to former circus employees, Ringling trainers routinely beat elephants and jab them with sharp metal bullhooks in order to force them to perform. Heartbreaking photos reveal how Ringling trainers cruelly force baby elephants to learn tricks—and it's not through a reward system, as the circus claims.

Nicole, Sara, and Rudy are all hauled around by Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, yet all three of these elephants are suffering from painful and chronic health problems. In a recent inspection report issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Ringling’s elephant caretaker claimed that he couldn’t provide these three elephants with daily veterinary treatment because he can’t access them when they are confined to boxcars. Nicole, Sara, and Rudy received no medication for their conditions for days on end.

Please contact LivingSocial and politely ask the company to cancel its Ringling ticket deal and to agree never to promote Ringling again.
