Mr Williams: your 'tree-hugging' friend is right... circuses are inhumane... and cruel. Exotic animals are forced to endure chains and small enclosures while at performance venues, forced to endure even more confining enclosures when traveling to the the next performance venue.

No matter that Bentley Brothers has a long list of violations regarding adequate enclosures, care, food, and general treatment ... most traveling circuses do... but MANAGEMENT has a list of violations against humans. Robert Moyer has been cited for aggressive and abusive behavior directed toward peaceful protestors at circus venues. He's even ASSAULTED humans ... those humans that choose to disclose his circus' inadequate and inhumane conditions.

So now, some 4 years since you allowed your son to witness the circus for himself, I'm hoping that he's convinced you just how unnatural, inhumane, and cruel it is to force an exotic animal to live the life of a circus performer.

Listen to your 'tree-hugger' friend... she's right, ya know.
