I’ll take animal circuses blow the big one for 500, Alex.

Let’s be honest — animal circuses are the opposite of cool.  With a notorious record for serving cruelty on tap, organizations like Ringling Bros. are essentially traveling hubs of animal mistreatment. And The Wrestler Director Darren Aronofsky is sick and tired of it! 

According to our buds over at PETA:

“As a Brooklyn native, When Darren learned that notorious elephant abuser Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus would be setting up shop at Coney Island all summer long, he sprang into action faster than you can say RoboCop. He penned a powerful letter to the folks at Taconic Investments—who are donating the use of their Coney Island land to Ringling—asking them to reconsider their offer or, at the very least, impose restrictions that could reduce the suffering of elephants and other animals used by Ringling.”

What do you think about all this circus action? Are you sick and tired of seeing animal mistreatment glorified? Post a comment and share your thoughts!
