PETA Beauty Exposes All, Including Truth About Ringling's Abuse of Animals
For Immediate Release: May 25, 2010
Contact: Virginia Fort 757-622-7382
Baton Rouge, La. -- Wearing nothing but shackles and covered in "scars" from violent "beatings"--which are an everyday reality for animals in circuses--PETA member Caroline Slocum will protest on Tuesday in Baton Rouge against the arrival of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
Where: Southwest corner of Third and Florida streets, Baton RougeWhen: Tuesday, May 25, 12 noon
"I'm here to expose what the circus is so desperate to hide from the public," says Slocum. "These animals have been beaten and deprived of their precious freedom--all for a lifetime of cheap tricks."
PETA has released dozens of never-before-seen photos taken inside Ringling's Florida training center by a veteran elephant handler. The photos expose how still-nursing baby elephants are captured rodeo-style and dragged away from their mothers. The babies scream and struggle frantically as they are wrestled, stretched out, slammed to the ground, gouged with steel-tipped bullhooks, and shocked with electric prods. These abusive sessions go on for several hours a day for up to a year.
