PLEASE HELP THE ANIMALS!!!
Starting in August 2014 and for 8 weeks, we, Animal Action Network, will begin our annual "NO Animals" in the circus advertisements prominently placed on RTD buses running numerous routes in the Denver Metro area. Click for 2013Bus Ad PICS. Our efforts are part of a growing movement, exposing what circus animal performers endure, all in the name of entertainment. Countries around the world, as well as many municipalities here in the US, have already banned the use of wild animals in circuses. The animals in
circuses spend most of their days in trailers, cages, or chains. Circus animals are being deprived of five basic freedoms: freedom from pain, injury or disease; freedom from hunger and thirst; freedom from fear and distress; freedom from discomfort; and freedom to express normal behaviors. Circus tricks do not resemble anything wild animals actually do in the wild. The animals are left with lifelong, debilitating, painful medical conditions after years of performing. Undercover videos reveal domination and fear being used as standard training practices, including shocking, whipping, and beatings with bull hooks. In fact, circuses with animal acts have been fined in the US for their treatment of the animals. Here is one example of a circus being fined for alleged violations of the Animal Welfare Act. Our local campaign graphically depicts circus life from the animals’ perspective.

HARD TO WATCH BUT HARDER ON THE ANIMALS
Wild Animals who have been kept in captivity can rarely be released into the wild.
“There are many wonderful local opportunities here in Colorado to show anyone the beauty of animals without supporting the circus. The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg is a perfect example of formerly abused wildlife living free and healthy lives. Animal Action Network is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your donation(s) are tax deductible. Please let us know if you would like a Tax Letter for your donation.
Whatever funds left, over the cost of this campaign, will be used for our many future actions.
adapted from The Star Thrower
by Loren Eiseley (1907 - 1977)
Once upon a time, there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work.
One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance to the day, and so, he walked faster to catch up.
As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, and that what he was doing was not dancing at all. The young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up small objects, and throwing them into the ocean.
He came closer still and called out "Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?"
The young man paused, looked up, and replied "Throwing starfish into the ocean." "I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?" asked the somewhat startled wise man. To this, the young man replied, "The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them in, they'll die." Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, "But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can't possibly make a difference!"
At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said, "It made a difference for that one."
