Urge Redbox to Cancel Cruel Ringling Bros. Promotion
PLEASE CLICK AND SIGN PETITION HERE
BACKGROUND | SOURCE PETA
Despite receiving information from PETA about Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus’ long history of animal abuse, movie and video game rental retailer Redbox continues to promote the cruel circus through an online ticket deal.
Ringling has a lengthy history of animal abuse and neglect and was recently fined $270,000 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for dozens of violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act. According to former circus employees, Ringling trainers routinely beat elephants and jab them with sharp, metal bullhooks in order to force them to perform. Heartbreaking photos reveal how Ringling circus trainers cruelly force baby elephants to learn tricks, and it’s not through a reward system, as they claim.
Using the form below, please contact the president of Redbox and politely ask her to cancel the company’s Ringling ticket deal and to agree never to promote Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus again.

I am extremely disappointed to see that Redbox is promoting Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, despite the circus’s record of animal abuse. Ringling was recently fined $270,000–the largest penalty ever given to a circus–by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for dozens of violations of the Animal Welfare Act.
Ringling Bros. rips still-nursing baby elephants away from their protective mothers, chains them for up to 100 hours at a time during transport, beats them, and shocks them with electric prods in order to force them to perform tricks that are confusing and unnatural to them. Corporations are distancing themselves from the negative publicity that surrounds Ringling. After learning about Ringling’s controversial history, MasterCard, Visa, Whole Foods, Denny’s, Lucky Brand, IGT, Lukoil, Sears, and other companies terminated their Ringling sponsorships or promotions. Burger King, Ford Motor Co., and General Mills ended their sponsorships of another animal-based circus after learning about these issues from PETA.
Please cancel your Ringling Bros. promotion right away. I won’t use Redbox and will tell all my friends and family to do the same until you do so. Please do the right thing.
ringling, a mingling of cruelty and heartlessness,
redbox, please do not associate yourself with
this ugly mess!!!!
