CONSERVATION GROUPS DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
We applaud Bill Cunningham - owner of Carden International Circus (the largest producer of US Shrine circuses) - who announced with PETA that he’s retiring all wild animal acts due to “immense psychological stress to the animals.”
James Hamid of Hamid Circus, agrees circuses “must keep up with the modern audience. … we see all circuses moving to non-animal productions.” ADI urges Hamid to commit to humane entertainment.
Earlier this year, ADI Animal Defenders International presented circus suffering evidence to Jerry Gantt, Imperial Potentate for Shriners International, urging the organization toward entertainment more consistent with its stated principles of love, relief, and truth. YES!!!
