YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Animal rights activists are in Youngstown, protesting what they say is inhumane treatment of circus animals.

On Sunday, the group handed out fliers and coloring books to folks heading to the Covelli Center for the Ringling Brothers show. They said that the company has paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines because of animal welfare violations.

“Yes, you can have fun at the circus and you probably, the people today will probably have a wonderful time including their children, but that’s only if you ignore the suffering of the animals. If you educate yourself and make yourself aware of what goes on with the animals, especially behind the scenes, I’m sure people will make a better decision,” said protester Veronica Dickey.

Protesters plan on being outside the Covelli Center on Monday night as well.

  1. Being a former native of Youngstown, I wish these animal activists would bloody MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS!! If they don't want to watch the animal acts fine, don't come. Don't ruin some decent entertainment for the rest of us though. Their idea of "humane" would be for these animals to be euthanized in any case.
