PETA Puts Out the Un-Welcome Mat for Ringling

Published by PETA.

Notorious animal abusers might rethink a visit to Norfolk, Virginia—home of the world’s largest animal rights organization (PETA!). When Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus rolls its elephant-beating act into town, our Norfolk office holds a lively and unmissable protest to make it known that the animal circus isn’t welcome here—or anywhere! Check out yesterday’s great turnout from PETA’s opening-night demo. We’ll be at every show to cheer the plummeting attendance figures. Please take a second to speak up for the animals who suffer for the saddest show on earth by urging the USDA to revoke Ringling’s exhibitor license.
