Local group protests Shiner's Circus
Feb 12, 2011 LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB Fox 41) -- A group of animal rights activists are protesting the circus that's in town this weekend.
Members of the group, Animal Lovers of Louisville, held signs and stood outside the state fairgrounds protesting the Kosair Shriner's circus.
They claim circus animals are mistreated and forced to do "unnatural activities."
They want it to stop.
"It's important to me to come out and show the community that this type of behavior is unnecessary, that it raises questions of ethical treatment towards other living creatures. And we are committed to stopping this practice in this community," said Dr. Marc A. Wessels, Animal Lovers of Louisville.
The group has made a habit of protesting.
We tried to contact the Kosair Shriner's Circus but there was no answer.
