Circus 50 percent off

If you didn’t know about the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus in town, you surely do know after one of the show’s zebras took off for a run in downtown and onto the Downtown Connector. It was quite a spectacle. At any rate, the circus is now slashing admission to this weekend’s performances by 50 percent. Travelzoo.com has a half-off offer when you purchase through Ticketmaster.com using the ZANG promo code.

Why not save 100% off the circus tickets and don’t buy any. A zebra being endangered as it runs down the connector is just the tip of the iceberg of documented neglect and abuse perpetrated by Ringling Bros. and other circuses that feel the need to cage animals and drag them around the country for the entertainment of human beings.

Show that you are more of a caring human being then the owners of this circus. Show your children that while animals are enjoyable to see, they belong in their natural habitat and that they were not put on this earth for our entertainment (nor food or clothing, but that is another subject). Take your children to another wonderful adventure at a museum or rent some wonderful movies that show animals in their natural habitats.

You would not appreciate being caged all your life, chained up in a little box, dragged out on stage for the amuzement of another species. Humans were supposed to have evolved above that. We ended slavery for humans in this country. Its high time we exercised our greatest vote – our monetary vote – and boycotted this and every other animal circus to help free these poor animals from their miserable existence.

Obviously the zebra “escaping” was CLEARLY a publicity stunt. They clearly knew this would get more free press than tv time than they could ever afford to pay. Especially since when 1 circus rolls into town, 2 others are riding their coat tails fighting for the same $. RBB&B knew good and well no harm would come to this runaway zebra and now EVERYBODY knows the circus is in town and SURPRISE tix are now all of a sudden HALF off? Things that make you go HMMMMMM.

I guess it is kind of odd that a zebra escapes in the hometown of CNN when all of the traffic helicopters are up in the air and just happens to end up running down the connector to get on the 5 o’clock news.

If endangering a zebra and possibly getting it killed or more significantly a driver is this circus’ idea of a publicity stunt, then the case for a boycott is even more clear.

How would everyone be feeling if a lion had escaped and started killing people.

These animals belong in the wild, not caged up in a traveling side show.

Can the city adopt the zebra as the official mascot? It would fit, since most of the politicians are crooks and should be wearing stripes like the zebra!!!!
