PETA Foundation Counsel Rachel Mathews released the following statement in response to the escape of two zebras from UniverSoul circus in Philadelphia:
Yet again, animals have escaped a circus and been chased through a city they never should have been taken to in the first place. UniverSoul needs to retire its animal acts immediately, and all kind families should refuse to buy a ticket to any circus that exploits animals. PETA is asking the U.S. Department of Agriculture to investigate immediately to ensure that the animals are receiving veterinary care.
