PETA To Protest Circus

Posted on Thu, Mar 1, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Protesters from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals will be at the Thursday night performance of the Al Chymia Shrine Circus.

PETA members will be holding a banner reading, "Shrine Circus Trainer Beats and Shocks Elephants," and one protester will be dressed as an elephant covered in blood. They'll also be showing a videotape they say shows a Shrine circus trainer mistreating elephants.

The protesters will be in front of the Agricenter from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

The Al Chymia Shrine Circus is an annual event that helps raise money for Shrine children's hospitals across the country.
