Jillian Michaels, fitness expert and star of The Biggest Loser, has announced she will lead today’s protest in Los Angeles against circus giant Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey.

Jillian tweeted the story in Look to the Stars today to her followers, saying “LA! Come join me!”

Ringling Bros. has a history of documented abuse and neglect of its animals, along with citations from the USDA.

“These animals should be allowed to live as nature intended—free from beatings, chains, and screaming crowds,” says Michaels, who recently visited Africa to see elephants in their natural habitat. “Their enslavement by the circus means they spend their lives in chains and stuffy train cars with no freedom to roam, and they suffer painful, fatal ailments that come from such a stressful existence.” 

Ringling Bros. will be in Los Angeles for a series of shows this week, the same week that the Animal Rights National Conference is there, bringing huge numbers of animal advocates and activists into town. The protest against the circus is being called “the biggest circus protest on Earth,” and the event page on Facebook shows 929 people have already responded as attending!

Organizations taking part in the protest include PETA, Animal Defenders International, In Defense of Animals, and Last Chance for Animals.
