Garden Bros. Circus Barred From Exploiting Animals in Roanoke

In another victory for animals suffering in circuses, the Berglund Center in Roanoke, Virginia, has barred Garden Bros. Circus from using animals when it comes to town in March! A former Garden Bros. employee reported that backstage, a camel named Cash once cried out so loudly during a beating that he could be heard on stage. Compassionate venues like the Berglund Center are helping PETA push circuses toward the animal-free future that they must embrace if they want to keep attracting audiences. Now, please urge Garden Bros. to drop its animal acts.
