Take Action for Circus Animals in 2007

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus has just launched its 137th edition and API is calling on concerned animal advocates across the country to continue to work together this year to bring an end to the cruelties that circus animals are forced to endure. Examples abound, including prolonged chaining and the use of bullhooks on elephants. Also, the 137th edition features 12 rare Royal Bengal and white tigers, who will spend most of the year inside small travel cages.

Efforts you make to educate people that using animals in circuses is an unnecessary and inhumane practice, harmful to both the animals and the public, make an important difference!

Please check out the list below for ways in which you can take action, and plan to put some or all of them into practice in 2007!
