Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.

Morrissey Sticks It to Ringling Onstage

Written by Michelle Kretzer | October 8, 2012

While every Morrissey show is darkly entertaining, every Ringling show, with its behind-the-scenes elephant beatings, is just plain dark. So when Moz played Boston right as Ringling was rolling into town, he gave his bandmates PETA’s “Ringling Beats Animals” tees to wear and gave Ringling the big middle drumstick:

Morrissey knows that true great shows don’t involve beating crippled elephants with sharp metal-tipped bullhooks to force them to act out confusing tricks. PETA just released a new video showing a Ringling trainer striking an elephant, who is already showing signs of arthritis, because she wasn’t performing exactly as she was told to.

Moz and his band choose to perform—elephants don’t. Tell Ringling that until it stops beating elephants, it can beat it, with your own “Ringling Beats Animals” tee

    If every person who reads this passes this on to 10 friendsand they pass it on, so on and so forth, then maybe we can help put an end to animal abuse….Stop going to the circus, the zoo and the aquariums…by not supporting them you will put them out of business….then there will be no need to capture innocent animals and put them into a life of captivity and abuse….Do Not Support these businesses! It starts with YOU…if you care pass it on!

    i was at the concert with my peta tee shirt and had a quick chat with the lady at the peta stall, i had attended from england and as meat is murder was played i looked at the faces at those near to me, it dawned on me that some had never seen Morrissey live before and you could see the shock on their faces, for that we must be thankful, because if shocking someone is the only way to get the message across, so be it..a special hi to the two girls running the peta stall..keep up your work..love.manc lad..manchester, england

    STOP ALL OF THE ANIMAL ABUSE! IT IT TRULY IMMORAL AND YOU NEED TO STOP BEFORE SOMEBODY ENDS UP DOING THIS ABUSE TO YOU AS YOU DO TO ALL OF YOUR ANIMALS! THEY DO NOT DESERVE TO BE ABUSED AND BEATEN JUST TO MAKE THEM DO STUFF THAT YOU WANT THEM TO DO! DO IT WITH LOVE AND CARE NOT ABUSE! I HOPE THAT ALL OF YOU GET EITHER JAIL OR PRISON TIME FOR ALL OF THIS ABUSE THAT YOU HAVE DISTRIBUTED TO ALL THESE PRECIOUS ANIMALS ALL THESE YEARS! I FOR ONE WILL NEVER EVER ATTEND ANOTHER CIRCUS FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE DUE TO YOUR DISRESPECT AND MISTREATMENT OF ALL ANIMALS IN YOUR CARE! I WENT TO THE CIRCUS ONCE WHEN I WAS A LITTLE CHILD, BUT NEVER AGAIN NOW THAT I AM A FULL GROWN ADULT! I HATE ANIMAL ABUSERS! ROT IN HELL ALL OF YOU!
