    I’ll marry you Ethan!!! Poor animals that don’t have a voice. We need to speak for them!

  • michael says:

    I think PETA over kills on most issues and I must be honest and say I’m not a fan but this tape makes me sick! It will be a cold day in hell before I atend another FELD Entertainment event!

  • Krystal says:

    I don’t understand how these ringlers can sleep at night nor how they cannot see the obvious distress the animals are suffering and yet feel no compassion or empathy. I have never and will never go to an animal circus.

  • Heather says:

    You’re awesome Ethan. I’ve loved you since you were a young Frankie “The Enforcer” Stecchino on Boy Meets World!

  • Tamra says:

    um liberty. this post is about ringling. michael vick is a different post.

  • Kathy Taylor says:

    Thanks for speaking out Ethan! People who abuse animals will come back in another life as one of types of animals they abused! I truly believe that.

  • Bonnie says:

    As tempting as it is to “hit back” it never teaches the lesson that violence is wrong. When anger over these abuses boils over remember that might never makes right and that it is best to lead by example. The elephants have been wronged please don’t add to it balance it out with some letters to the local toy store where they have a stack of discount flyers for the circus. Call your local newspaper! Act positively! It feels great.

  • Lyberty Belle says:

    Is he disgusted by Michael Vick? Why doesn’t he punch Vick in the face? Vick did a thousand times more damage to animals than any Ringling employee. Go after the real criminal.

  • Deborah Pope says:

    Love the show AND love Ethan! When people in the public eye speak out others listen. Thanks Ethan!!

  • Amber says:

    I feel ve sad very sad for those poor animals at the circus and i belive that we should sue them for being creul to animals!!! Peta you are so amazing.

  • Wendy says:

    Me too!!!!!! Thank you for speaking out against the Circus! It’s pitiful we even have too!

  • carla says:

    You go Ethan x

  • Kathryn says:

    I’m with you Ethan and I would add Kenneth Feld who could stop all of this if he wanted to by enforcing a firing policy for anyone who mistreats the animals in their care.

  • Melissa says:

    I’ve always been a big fan of him. Now I’m an even bigger fan of him for speaking out. Thank you Ethan! Anyone who can speak out on behalf of animals is good person in my book.

  • David says:

    LOL Awesome. That’s a nice chill show. You rock Ethan! Sooo many stand behind you in that statement. I could frame it it’s so rightonthespot.

  • johnny says:

    next time they come to Baltimore ill be waiting for them

  • B Sullivan says:

    I think we should all get in a line and have free reign on using bull hooks on all the executives of ringling brothers feld entertainment and those third world trainers.

  • Sandra says:

    Anyone who abuses animals Punch them in the face!

  • champs elysees says:

    agreed! ringling employees should get the same treatment they give to the poor captive elephants that they force to do tricks. these elephants should be in the wild. not captive to “entertain” pathetic humans.
