HONDA CENTER AND THE CITY OF ANAHEIM are promoting Federal Cruelty Criminal Entertainment as "Contemporary Circus" when Ringling Bros. refuses to give up outdated, ignorant, and abusive treatment of wild animals that belongs in the past. It is no longer acceptable to abuse animals for entertainment.
This IS NOT the behavior of a civilized, advanced society and locals prefer FEDERAL CRUELTY CRIMINAL FRAUD OF PATRONS NOT BE MARKETED TO ORANGE COUNTY FAMILIES AS "FAMILY TRADITION"... See Ringling Photos, testimony, and legal evidence on Newport Beach Patch article that does not promote fraud or animal abuse to a dignified community.

BOB BARKER ADDRESSES US CONGRESS on use of Wild Animals in Circuses-
JAN CREAMER- President of Animal Defenders International- ADDRESSES US CONGRESS.
**In November 2011, the first bill to comprehensively tackle the use of all wild animals in circuses was launched in the U.S. at a press conference attended by Bob Barker, Jorja Fox, Animal Defenders International, and the Performing Animal Welfare Society. The Travelling Exotic Animal Protection Act, introduced by Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.), will restrict the use of exotic and non-domesticated animals in traveling circuses and exhibitions.**.

RINGLING BROS CIRCUS IS CRUEL TO ELEPHANTS! -- DON'T BUY A TICKET!
Trainers and workers have been filmed routinely using whips, goads, metal bars, pitchforks, shovels, the ankus/bullhook (a bar with a metal hook on the end), as well as electric prods and even stun guns on the animals.
No one is saying “end circuses”; circus businesses must adapt to changes in audience tastes, like all businesses, and the popularity of human-only circus shows points the way. Cirque du Soleil, for example appears eight times in the top ranking international shows alongside Madonna and Lady Gaga world tours (Top 50 Highest Earning World Tours in 2012), with combined ticket sales of nearly $400 million. Not a single animal circus made the list.
So save your money, and your conscience – when the Ringling comes to Anaheim, show them you refuse to support animal suffering by taking your business elsewhere.
