For Immediate Release:
January 9, 2015
Today is a landmark day for the elephants, tigers, and other animals who will no longer be chained, caged, and beaten into performing tricks in circuses anywhere in Mexico. Ringling Bros. and other cruel circuses will no longer be able to drag wild animals back and forth across the border, and members of the Mexican public will no longer be in danger of attack by a frustrated, abused lion or elephant under the big top. Mexico is setting a wonderful example of kindness and common sense for the rest of the world—an example that PETA will push U.S. lawmakers to follow.
