It appears PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is rallying the troops right here in Houston. They want their supporters to go out and protest The Ringling Brothers, Barnum, and Bailey Circus next week. The main event will be pulling into our city and PETA wants to target the entertainment group Wednesday. They point to how the organization has allegedly treated baby elephants. Here’s more from their mailer to supporters:
Please join local PETA members and animal rights activists to speak out the day before Ringling’s opening day and expose how Ringling beats elephants to make them perform. We need your help to urge everyone to boycott the circus!
Be sure to watch and share PETA’s new video with Alec Baldwin urging everyone to boycott circuses that use animals.
When: Wednesday, July 11, 11:45 a.m.-1 p.m. (This show time is our best chance to get media coverage, so please try to make it!)
Where: In front of Reliant Stadium, at the intersection of Kirby and Murworth drives (See this map).
