Sign the Petition to

Mayor Johnson, Elk Grove Board of Trustees, Elk Grove Village Lion's Club

Elk Grove Village is currently allowing traveling circuses with wild animals to come perform and make a profit off of its residents. These circuses intentionally exploit animals for profit. Because of this, the well-being of these animals is often overlooked. Extreme measures are taken to get these animals to do tricks and perform.

These wild animals are SCARED and DO NOT want to perform. Bull hooks, whips, and electrocution methods are used if these animals do not obey commands. When not performing, these animals are held in confined boxcars, metal cages, or in spiked chains for up to 100 hours straight.

These circuses do not teach our children the right way to treat animals. Elephants, tigers, lions, zebras and other circus animals are deprived of everything natural and important to them. All of their basic instincts are met with punishment.

Wild animals belong in the wild.

The Kelly Miller Circus has been asked to come to Elk Grove on many occasions. You can read the list of fines and citations this circus has here:

Please stand up and let "The Exceptional Community" know that we do NOT want animal circuses in our town!

Signed,
