Circus Patrons: You May Be Entitled to Monetary Compensation

Have you—or has someone you know—been deceived by Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus? Ringling knows that no one would patronize the circus if they knew about the cruel abuse that happens behind the scenes, including regular beatings of elephant with bullhooks—long metal rods with sharp steel hooks and points at the ends that resemble fireplace pokers—and shocking elephants with electric prods. To protect its image, Ringling tries to cover up this reality through a parade of false and misleading statements about the conditions that the animals it uses endure.

PETA is out to stop this deception, but we need your help!

If you or someone you know who cares about animals has been to the circus, please contact PETA now. You may be entitled to monetary compensation.
