Ban Animal Exploitation in Marshall, MN! - The Petition Site

Sunday, 30 August 2009

The city of Marshall, MN. has continuously invited circuses into their city limits that have long histories of animal neglect and violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act (AWA). Almost all of the citations that these circuses receive are cases of sheer abuse and neglect which could have been prevented if the proper measures were taken -it is because of this that we ask for the adoption of a city-wide ordinance that will ban the use of wild and exotic animals for entertainment purposes within city limits.

Such an ordinance will not only prevent animals from being abused and exploited for entertainment, but it will also take a stand against exotic animal poaching and trade. A circus that recently visited Marshall obtained their two elephants from their native habitat. These elephants now live a subservient life performing unnatural acts that pose a risk both to the elephants themselves, but they also endanger the trainers, audiences, and communities that host the circuses.
