New York -- Armed with signs that read, "Ringling Beats Animals," PETA members
will crash Ringling Bros.' "Elephant Dance Party" in DUMBO at 11 a.m.
Wednesday morning and give parents DVDs of PETA's video exposé
narrated by Alec Baldwin, which shows how Ringling routinely beats and
When: Wednesday, March 20, 10:30 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Where: At the intersection of Old Fulton and Water streets in DUMBO and outside the Barclays Center, 620 Atlantic Ave. (near the intersection with Sixth Avenue), Brooklyn
Later that evening, a record
number of protesters—including some dressed as elephants—will gather at
Barclays Center to target Ringling's opening night performance. Members of
PETA, In Defense of Animals, Animal Defenders International, Caring Activists
Against Fur, and Long Island Orchestrating for Nature will display blown-up photos
of Ringling trainers as they stretch out baby elephants, slam them to the
ground, shock them with electric prods, and strike them with sharp steel-tipped
whipping elephants—including babies—into submission is anything but a
party," says PETA
Foundation Director of Captive Animal Law Enforcement Delcianna Winders. "PETA is telling New Yorkers that if their children
and grandchildren love animals, the last place that they should take
them is the circus."
In late 2011, Ringling Bros. paid
the largest fine in circus history—$270,000—for violations of the Animal
Welfare Act, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture recently opened a formal
investigation into Ringling for further violations.
