Sign the Petition to

Cheryl and Danielle Lennon from Lennon's Circuses

We are writing to question your use of anaimls in your circus. This campaign is to stop all types of animals being used in circuses. As one of the longest serving circuses it is important that you set the example to other in the industry. Circuses like yours that use animals is showing younger generations of kids that it’s okay to exploit animals for entrainment. You are the ones that can make a change by stopping animals from being used in circuses; you are responsible for the welfare of the animals and how they are being treated. Exotic animals shouldn’t be made to do tricks and stunts that are not apart of their natural behaviour and you and your company are encouraging this! We want people to see animals in their natural habit and we want to see their natural behaviour.
It’s extremely important that we stop animals from being in circuses, 96% of these animals lives are spent in tiny cages and pens travelling from show to show. These animals never get to experience life on the outside of the big tents. Animals like lions need large amount of room to roam and being in circuses do not allow them to experience this as they are either in tiny cages travelling or being taught tricks and stunts. You need to stop using animals in circuses as its wrong to make innocent animals preform for entertainment purposes. Animals are not made to jump through rings of fire or walk on their Hine legs if they naturally walk on 4. Its also showing not only young children but also adults that its okay to use and abuse animals and treat them horribly.
Circus life is demanding even for people- travelling to many places and not having a stable ‘home’ . Imagine how it is for a creature with wild instincts, away from their natural habitat, away from their social structures and unable to express themselves as they desire.
If you stop using animals in your circuses it will prove to other circuses that you don’t need animals for people to come to your circus. There are many different acts that your circus can do apart from the use of animals. Having more and more circuses banning the use of animals will start to make a difference and free the poor animals and allow them to explore the world beyond the big tents.
Your company is responsible for the welfare of these animals and by showing the other circuses that you don’t need animals might make the other company’s think and realise that what they are doing is wrong and will not use animals anymore. You need to stop using animals in your circuses as you are destroying their lives.
Yours sincerely,
Kaylah Mannion
