Help Stop TNT's Circus "Reality" Show Promoting Ringling Bros.!

Recently, cable station Turner Network Television (TNT) announced

plans to run a reality show featuring notorious animal abusers

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. TNT cameras intend to

follow Ringling as it travels from city to city, but you can bet

that one reality--the animal abuse--will be kept hidden from viewers.

This show will be nothing more than a lengthy Ringling commercial.

Viewers surely won't see the behind-the-scenes abuse of elephants,

tigers, horses, and other animals.


Please contact Turner Entertainment Networks president Steve Koonin,

CEO Philip Kent, and Vice President Michael Wright Sr., and politely

urge them to abandon plans to air the Ringling reality show.

Remind them that after learning of the abuse inherent in animal

circuses, major corporations like Denny's, Lukoil, General Mills,

Burger King, Liz Claiborne, MasterCard, Visa, and Sears, Roebuck &

Co. ended their promotions of circuses like Ringling and UniverSoul.

In recent years, PETA has caught on videotape that Ringling handlers

were aggressively using bullhooks on elephants, a Ringling trainer

inflicted a bloody wound behind an elephant's ear, and lame

elephants were forced to travel and perform.
