This was Suzy.🐅 She was forced to perform frightening and confusing tricks day after day in the #ringlingbros circus. Feld Entertainment, Ringling’s parent company, was planning to ship her and 14 other big cats used by Ringling Bros.— #lions, #tigers, and a leopard, all of whom are legally entitled to the protection of the Endangered Species Act—to Europe to be used, yet again, in circus 🎪 acts.
.
But before she was sent on what would’ve been an excruciating journey to Europe, Feld allowed her to escape—and she was then gunned down in the streets in Georgia. The U.S. Fish and #Wildlife Service issued an export permit to the company, despite learning from PETA and thousands of people that it didn’t meet the legal requirements for the permit—because using animals in circus acts doesn’t help the species’ survival rates in the wild and even harms legitimate conservation efforts!

A corrupt company that💰profits💰off living, feeling beings and reduces them to pieces of property, Feld has a long history of animal abuse. If it hadn’t tried to squeeze another dollar out of Suzy by shipping her off to another circus, she’d probably still be alive today.💔
.
We all have the power to help animals like #Suzy who are still suffering in circuses today. Animals used in circuses are hauled from city to city in cramped boxcars or trailers, kept shackled with chains for most of their lives, and beaten in order to get them to perform on cue. 😢

Tigers are forced to jump through🔥flaming hoops🔥(even though they’re naturally afraid of fire) and worse. Never go to a circus that uses animals, and ask your friends and family members to do the same.

@sue2q & I had a chance to catch a quick 24 hours with @chazchambers as he travels to #iceland for a bit of adventure.
We managed to not drive Sue completely crazy w/ music talk and I even threw the cameras up in the Camry to chat with Chaz about his new venture @havanamusictours on the next #carpoolingwithben - presented by @cardisfurniture this Friday (10/20) - Safe Travels, my friend.
See you down the road!

The clowns are back!! I need more, it's still a sparse collection.... #pennywise
Ever since I was 6 years old I wanted to be apart of their amazingly produced shows and it’s just crazy I get to walk through this epic building and get to see all the spectacular stuff that happens here. I admire everything they do it’s so surreal to me to get to be here! #FeldEntertainment #feldstudios #marveluniverselive #disneylive #disneyonice #sesamestreetlive #MonsterJam #ringlingbros #supercross #arenacross
Circuses are about as cruel as it gets. From jumping through fire to being beaten with whips and bull hooks. These animals are tortured until the day they die. Please don’t support this horrible industry. ~Jillian
