Little Mix’s Big Message: Get Wild Animals Out of the Circus

Posted by 1 year ago | Permalink | Comments (15)

Little Mix are used to entertaining, but the girls know it’s definitely not what animals are for. The X Factor–formed group have joined the fight against wild animals in circuses and might well have even outdone the lions in ferocity!

little mix PETA circus campaignLittle Mix join PETA and other leading animal-protection organisations, nearly all MPs and the majority of the British public in opposing this archaic form of “entertainment”.

Wild animals in circuses commonly suffer from chronic health problems, abusive treatment, psychological disorders and aberrant behaviour, and many die prematurely. By virtue of the very nature of circuses – which confine animals to cages or boxcars, force them to perform tricks which are totally unnatural to them and deny them the opportunity to engage in natural behaviour – animal welfare can never be ensured in a circus environment.

Little Mix superstar Leigh-Anne Pinnock says:

“We were shocked to learn that wild animals are still suffering in circuses. Animals don’t jump through rings of fire for fun – they do so out of fear, and it’s time to ban this so-called form of entertainment once and for all . There’s no reason why animals should still be suffering in circuses, and we hope that by posing for this ad, we’ll be doing our bit to help ban the use of wild animals in circuses. We hope, too, that our fans will join us in supporting PETA’s campaign to end this cruelty.”

Prime Minister David Cameron promised to ban circuses that use animals by January 2015 but has been dragging his heels and failed to bring any legislation to Parliament during the last government.

Join Little Mix and countless others by taking action now. Write to Cameron to tell him that there’s no excuse for further delaying the ban because forcing wild animals to perform absurd tricks is cruel and has no place in modern Britain.

    Wild animals are called ‘wild’ for a reason – they are wild at heart and need their freedom!

      Humanity has got to wake-up and come to know that all life on this planet is connected and start looking after and respecting other life as you do your own. Ignorance is the root cause of the three poisons Greed, hate and delusion.

    Please end the suffering now. It’s ridiculous for something like this to happen for a short time but for it to go on this long is just absolutely awful. Thank You

    Stop this dreadful torture of animals in circuses.

    Wild animals are exactly that WILD to be in their own enviroment living freely, doing what comes naturally to them. This barbaric way of treating animals for entertainment is inhumane. PLEASE stop this NOW! Allow these animals their freedom to enjoy their life as that is how they were created FREE.

    Wild animals are wild. We once caught two wild cats to feed them and to go to the vet. They couldn’t help jumping everywhere in the kitchen. Wild animals don’t belong in circusses. After my previous experience with cats, I can’t help thinking of the sufferings of animals in circusses.
