PETA Tries To Shut Down Boxing Kangaroo Show

You did not read that heading incorrectly.  The Rocky Show Circus is currently traveling through Florida, and Rocky is a kangaroo. A kangaroo who is forced to box humans (insert the collective groan here).

PETA has sent a complaint to the Florida State Boxing Commission and the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation asking them to stop this spectacle. PETA reports that all boxing matches need to be licensed by the State Boxing Commission and the Rocky Show Circus has not complied. 

The exhibitor (and in my opinion world-class scum) Javier Martinez puts the dressed-up kangaroo into the ring with a human and taunts him into fighting back. Martinez has been cited multiple times for violations of the Animal Welfare Act for his poor treatment of Rocky.

Jennifer O’Connor from PETA writes, “Rocky is clearly stressed and has charged people during photo shoots, chewed on his own arm, and attempted to flee the ring during the act.”

UFC fighter Thiago Alves knows that animals don’t belong in the ring. He’s tweeting against it.

We hope Rocky won’t share the fate of his predecessors, two other kangaroos used in Martinez’s grotesque show who have died while traveling with UniverSoul Circus.

If you only want a less-cruel turkey industry, you don’t give a shit about turkeys

There’s more than enough out their promoting the use of animals already- can’t animal rights activists agree to be the ones who say stop it and mean it?


Vandalism and aggression won’t help veganism

These acts of intimidation and aggression don’t change public perspective on veganism for the better, and that’s the only thing that will help animals.
