Garp Ringling Brothers Protest Atlanta, February 11 To February 15, 2015

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

Join GARP in protesting Ringling Brothers Circus. Why do we protest? In the Ringling Brothers Circus, elephants are beaten, hit, poked, prodded, and jabbed with sharp hooks, sometimes until bloody. Constant travel means that animals are confined to boxcars, trailers, and trucks for days at a time in extremely hot or cold weather, often without access to basic necessities such as food, water, and veterinarian care. Elephants, big cats, bears, and primates are confined to cramped and filthy cages in which they eat, sleep, drink, defecate, and urinate, all in the same place. In November 2011, Ringling was fined $270,000 by the USDA for multiple violations of the Animal Welfare Act. This is the largest fine ever assessed against a circus under the Animal Welfare Act. Ringling has made history as The Cruelest Show on Earth. Please join us and speak up for the animals. This is a legal and peaceful gathering. Posters, banners, and leaflets will be provided. Dates and Times: Feb 11 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm Feb 12 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm Feb 13 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm Feb 14 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm Feb 14 5:45 pm – 7:00 pm Feb 15 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm Feb 15 5:45 pm – 7:00 pm Questions?
