Sign the Petition to

Shane Lennon, owner of Hudson Circus

Dear Shane Lennon,

We believe that the mistreatment of animals in the circus and also cruel training techniques are a very important issue because animals do not deserve the abuse and torture they go through. We also believe that you are in a position to take action to address this issue due to your role in the circus. Since you own the Hudson Circus you are able to take action to stop the cruelty and start to make a change.

This action of stopping animal cruelty in entertainment and specifically in your circus is needed urgently. It is cruel and in humane to force animals to perform stunts and acts in front of a crowd of people for entertainment. The animals get very disorientated and start to build up anger and can turn frantic from all the stress they undergo because of performing is unnatural for any animal, therefore for an animal performing in a circus this is a cruel and unnatural act. The Cirque Du Soleil for example does not use any animals in their shows and still people are amazed by the beautiful performance they produce without animals.

This action will help by hopefully changing the Australian circus industry into an industry that is not known for harming animals and forcing them to entertain. But known for performing astonishing acts and stunts and amazing the crowd without the need of animals at all.

Your company will be judged on its ability to take action and stop using animals in the circus. The eyes of the world are watching! Obviously it is time that action is taken to stop the use of animals in entertainment and change the industry all together.

Yours sincerely,
Benjamin Streets

This

petition is very important because animals do not deserve to be mistreated in Australian circuses. The animals do not have a voice and with this petition and all the names on it we can speak for the animals. I chose the person being petitioned "Shane Lennon" owner of Hudson Circus because he owns one of the biggest circuses in Australia and hopefully if he stops using animals the rest of The Australian Circus Industry will. This petition is important because this will put the word out and hopefully that word will spread throughout the world to put a stop to animal cruelty in entertainment.
