Ringling Bros. circus was fined $270,000 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for dozens of violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act.
According to former circus employees, Ringling trainers routinely beat elephants and jab them with sharp metal bullhooks in order to force them to perform!
Who would be down with promoting such cruelty? Well, apparently the online deal site Travelzoo is. The company is currently promoting the cruel Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus—even after receiving information from PETA about the circus’s long history of animal abuse!
Ask Travelzoo to join the countless other businesses—including Lucky Brand, Denny’s, Lukoil, MasterCard, Visa, Sears, Burger King, Ford Motor Co., and General Mills—that have agreed not to support circuses that use animals.
