Cruelty does not belong in entertainment and that's exactly what happens when Ringling Brothers circus comes to town. For the wild animals, it's a life of abuse and neglect. In 2011, RB was fined $270,000 by the USDA for the poor treatment of their animals, and countries around the world plus 20-plus U.S. municipalities have banned the use of wild animals in circuses and the western Washington towns of Redmond and Port Townsend have as well. Can't we be that compassionate here in the Mid-Columbia?
Every ticket purchased supports animal abuse ... please take your family to cruelty-free entertainment.
