Here in West Michigan, the circus is in town. Ringling Brothers are all over local media promoting their shows, promising fun for all the family. But sadly it's not so much fun being an animal at Ringling Bros. They have a history of animal cruelty and have been the subject of undercover investigations from organizations such as the one from PETA.
The circus website claims that the animals are well loved and cared for, because the animals welfare is of the upmost importance to them, but why then are animals covered in laceration scars and being videoed when beaten by bull hooks?
The 'red unit' shown in the video is the same team that are performing in West Michigan this weekend. what will be happening behind the scenes as you and your kids are waiting to see the show?
