After years of protests and petitioning, student animal rights supporters at Michigan State University (MSU) have prevailed in stopping the cruel Royal Hanneford Circus from visiting campus again this year.
In response to student protests and cruelty concerns, MSU declined to host animal circuses on campus in 2009. Unfortunately, by 2010, they were brought back to campus—until now.
The school has announced that there are no plans to bring animals back to MSU in 2012, and students are now calling for a permanent ban. In a news release, Mitch Goldsmith of MSU’s Students Promoting Animal Rights had this to say:
The cruelty and abuse involved in animal circuses is contrary to the values we hold at Michigan State University. Now is the time for [P]resident Simon and the Board of Trustees to move forward with an [outright] ban of animal circuses on campus.
Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
I am Angela. When I am not helping animals I am listening to music, reading, or playing video games. My spirit animal is a fox and I love nature. What else is there to know? Want to know anything about me, need advice or anything message me :)
