I am petitioning Barnaby Joyce because he has a huge say if animals are used in entertainment or not

Dear Barnaby Joyce

We the undersigned demand that you stop animal abuse in entertainment by banning zoos and circuses. This would be important because animals are being killed, injured and are in a cage when they could be with their family in the wild.

We believe that as the Australian senator you are in a position to ban animal entertainment by starting a campaign and making people aware by not paying for circuses and zoos. This is a very important topic because animals are getting injured and sicker as we speak. They are being kept in small cages when they should be in the wild with their family. If we stop animal entertainment we could affect so many animals for the better they will live longer and healthier lives in the wild with their family. Is a couple of minutes of entertainment worth ruining the animal’s life?
Here are some facts showing what really happens in animal entertainment
1. Circus training for animals are often brutal and dangerous. Training methods can include using beating clubs, electrics and deprivation of food
2. Traveling and roadside zoos are even crueller. Animals are often kept in barren cages, such as concrete pens, and in stressful environments, with nothing more than an old tire or a log to stimulate their minds and enrich their lives.
3. Captive animals are deprived of everything that is natural and important to them, and as a result, they become bored and lonely and many even suffer from a condition called “zoochosis.” If you’ve ever witnessed a captive animal rock and sway back and forth, you’ve seen the disease firsthand. This condition is so rampant in zoos that some zoos give animals a mood-altering drug, such as Prozac, because the public has started to catch on.
The aim of this petition is to Stop animal entertainment in Australia and release all of the animals where they naturally belong with their family.
We need to take action because animals will live longer and happier lives because you stopped this type of entertainment to keep growing. If you don’t stop this issue people may start to hate on you in the near future
Obviously it is time that action is taken to free animals from being exposed in entertainment and stop ruining their lives for our entertainment. We ask that you stop animal entertainment, we could affect so many animals for the better they will live longer and healthier lives in the wild with their family. Is a couple of minutes of entertainment worth ruining the animal’s life?
How will them taking this action influence how others see them and their company, if you stop animal entertainment and televise you releasing the animals and exposing the torture they went through people will look up and praise you for giving the animals a better life.

Yours sincerely
Ashton Nunn
