It’s bad enough that any animal has to suffer in a circus — but how about when they finally have a chance to escape…and find themselves stuck in the middle of downtown Atlanta? That’s like going from one circle of hell to another.
Such was the sad display that happened yesterday after a Barnum & Bailey zebra escaped from its enclosure and galloped to freedom down a major commuter thoroughfare. Atlanta’s finest went hot in pursuit — and 40 minutes later eventually rounded up the runaway; returning him to the circus and a lifetime of animal therapy.
PETA should be all over this one in 3..2..1.. [Update: Yes, they are.]
