According to a news story, the City Council of “Los Angeles is poised to ban elephants from performing in circuses within its city limits….”
The circus has been around since ancient times. Meant to entertain, circuses often mean suffering, pain, fear, and degradation for the animals who are forced to perform day after day. Life is hard for the humans who choose to work in the circus. Life is inhumane for the nonhuman animals who have no choice.
Los Angeles residents, please contact the mayor and your council members to express your desire that circus elephants should not be allowed to perform in your city.
California residents, please contact the mayor of Los Angeles and members of the Los Angeles City Council to express your support of the proposed ban.
The Honorable Antonio R. Villaraigosa, Mayor
The Honorable Herb J. Wesson, Jr., Council President
The Honorable Ed Reyes, President Pro Tempore
