peta2 pal Pink recently tweeted that she had “…the BESTest day” with her “amazing sexy hubby,” Carey Hart riding around on beach cruisers and watching the circus. Not to worry, though—our girl Pink would never attend the kind of circus that tears baby elephants away from their mothers and beats them with bullhooks. Pink’s tweet continued: “Not the real circus people. No animals, just people. That look and behave like animals. On acid. Tis’ a colorful world.” We should all take a cue from this compassionate couple and support one of the many circuses that leave animals in peace and feature only amazingly talented—and, most importantly, willing—human performers!
There are so many ignorant people who say that by protesting circuses we are trying to destroy an old-fashioned family tradition. That’s not the point. We can still have circuses, just ones featuring paid human performers.
