THE SADDEST SHOW ON EARTH
THE ARENA IS NO PLACE FOR ANIMALS

"Also, as one elephant has indeed died this year (as circus media said) and as another elephant is apparently missing (as the circus had seven elephants and now appears to have only five, which is strange, as, to our knowledge, only one elephant has died) and no one knows what has happened to her, we suspect that something is indeed happening to the animals at this circus – but of course no authority cares about that. A lion and a horse of the same circus have also died over this year, but apparently all these deaths are still no reason for the authorities to take any kind of action against the circus."
Elephants, tigers and other animals in circuses never have a day off.
Their spirits are broken; their lives are spent in demeaning performances – robbing them of their freedom and dignity.
Animals don’t do headstands or jump through fire because they enjoy it; they do it because they fear punishment. Circuses with animal acts are not decent family entertainment.
Baby elephants are removed from their mothers and forced into a lifetime of performing. As the families of these animals are broken, so are their spirits. Elephants have their legs chained and live in cramped quarters 12 months a year.
Let’s stop teaching children that they should applaud animal slavery, abusive confinement, training, and commercial exploitation.
Wild animals belong in their homelands, not under the
bright lights of a circus ring.
Please show that you respect animals –
Boycott the Circus!
Come join the protest
Extinction of animals.
In 1960 there were 1,2 million elephants in Africa
2009 there are left 300.000
Years ago there were 200.000 lions
in wildlife now there are 23.000
