Elephants in the hands of Ringling Bros. are whipped as well as yanked and beaten with heavy steel-tipped bullhooks—sometimes until bloody! 🙁 The good news? Street Teamers are taking action against the cruelty of the circus!

When Street Teamer Alexandra Craig found out that the circus was coming to town, she took it upon herself to speak up for these animals. Alexandra and her friends protested for four days! Many people who were heading toward the circus even changed their minds and went to a nearby music festival instead when they learned about the horrible ways that elephants and other animals are abused in circuses. Way to go, Alexandra!

Check out these rockin’ pics from the protest:

    That is fantastic; I really admire people who love animals, same way I do, and defend/stand for them; you’re doing a wonderful job Alexandra, being their voice!

    My advice would be to start a group on Facebook. Its a great way to reach people. Ask all of your friends & family members to share the page, & get involved. Once you’ve formed a group of people, make a name for yourselves, depending on what type of protests you want to do, or animal rights you want to voice your opinions about. For example, I’m a part of a local vegan group & we meet multiple times a week for movies, book discussions, potlucks, and more. There are so many ways to get involved. Even if that doesn’t work out, just doing your own thing still helps! Volunteer at local non kill shelters. Hope that helps 🙂
