A small country with a big animal cruelty problem

Animal cruelty even in paradise. Sign to ask Monaco to stop using animals in circuses.
Sign Now
Dear friends,
The city-state of Monaco is known for having one of the highest standards of living in the world. But some of its residents might not agree. Monaco is home to the International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo where clowns perform tricks, spectators ooh and ahh and wild animals are forced to perform tricks against their will.
Princess Stephanie of Monaco, president of the festival, defends using animals in circuses by saying it is part of their culture. But no culture should get a pass if cruelty is involved.
This is especially true now that more countries are banning the practice. In fact, Scotland and Italy just banned the practice last year, and Wales and England are also considering similar policies.
Animals are not entertainment. They have their own will and desires and deserve to live a life free from cruelty — preferably in the wild where they belong. Circuses, magic shows and aquarium spectacles that use live animals are reducing living, breathing beings to objects that can be forced to do as we want, when we want. It's not only cruel, it's wrong.
It's time Monaco join Scotland, Italy, El Salvador, Sweden and a whole host of other national and local governments in ending the animal entertainment industry. Please sign the petition and ask Monaco to end the use of animals in circuses.
Thank you,
 Andrew M.

P.S. Every month more countries are deciding to say no to wild animal performances. Tell Monaco to join them. Please sign the petition.
