Family of Four Eats $200

Published by PETA.

It’s happened again. After forking over a couple hundred dollars for tickets to a Ringling Bros. Circus performance in Everett, Washington, a lovely family had a change of heart after talking to PETA demonstrators outside the arena. Rather than watching trainers whip tigers and smack elephants with bullhooks, the entire family decided that it was worth it to sacrifice the money! (The venue refused to give them a refund.) Gotta love ’em.

If the circus is coming to your town, remember that leafleting can and does change minds. Contact us and we’ll help you convince people never to buy tickets!
