Another Victory! Lukoil Ends Ringling Promotions

Published by PETA.

We’re just knocking them out of the park at the moment. Literally two hours after posting an alert on our site asking members to contact the American subsidiary of Russian oil-giant Lukoil about their promotion of the Ringling Bros. Circus, the company has made the compassionate decision to cut all ties with the circus due to its history of animal abuse. Or, as they put it in their email to us: “Per our conversation today, we do not have a sponsorship/partnership with Ringling Bros. and are not going to in the future.”

Thanks, guys! And thanks to everyone who helped us out by letting Lukoil know what they were getting into.
