interesting displays and it is a great way to get the

for Animals Unveils Anti-Circus Billboard
Coalition for Animals with
the help of SORT unveiled the Animal Protection Institute
billboard "The Cruelest Show On Earth" to encourage
people not to attend circuses this summer.
The billboard was place on May 30th,
northbound Route 206 (north of the railroad), in Hillsborough.
We hope that the billboard will
encourage potential circus patrons not to attend these shows
that are so cruel to the animals who are forced to perform.
Performing captive wildlife endure years of physical and
psychological pain and suffering in traveling acts to
"entertain" an uninformed audience. Animals used in
the circus travel thousands of miles each year without water,
in railroad cars or trucks not air-conditioned in summer or
heated in winter. These performing animals do not receive the
proper care, nutrition, and environmental enrichment required
for their well-being. For the animals, it is a pathetic life
filled with deprivation, stress, cruelty, confinement, terror,
loneliness, and boredom. The unnatural acts animals perform
are out of fear and intimidation. It is no wonder that scores
of people have been injured or killed after a wild animal
finally "snaps" after years of abuse.
