I demand that you organise to ban circuses that show case animals, and take animals out of the wild. Captive animals are deprived of their natural habitat, social structure and companionship. We do not have a right to breed, capture and confine these animals. These industries fail to treat animals correctly, not only show-casing them but in training, cruelty is involved, circuses and zoos use weapons or provide their minimum needs for food and shelter. The public need to realise, by attending these events they are supporting the mistreatment of animals.
Most people believe that industries such as zoos, circuses, etc. are a way to benefit and protect animals. What the public is unaware of is the way animals are being mistreated. Even in zoos, not all animals’ unique needs can be met, such as climate, diet, health, social interaction, exercise.
Obviously it is time that action is taken to take a stand against these industries. We ask that you agree to stand up for these animals rights, as your slogan suggests "for all creatures great and small". By making the public aware of what is going on, this will decrease the amount of popularity and crowds at these venues. We also request that you start working towards banning circuses within Queensland as a start. In addition, by taking legal action against these organisations, you would show the world that it is not okay to manipulate animals for our own amusement.
I believe this petition will be a start to stop the the suffering endured by innocent animals, whose rights have been taken away. By educating the public about this problem, it may reduce the...
