PETA: The bare facts

Posted By on Wed, Nov 19, 2008 at 11:27 AM

In the morning mail:

What:  Confined to a cage with her nude body painted like a tiger and a banner above her reading, "Wild Animals Don't Belong Behind Bars," PETA member Christina Dang will protest the impending arrival of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus in Little Rock.

What's wrong with Ringling? If you're the caged tiger who was shot to death by a Ringling trainer, the young lion who died unattended in a stiflingly hot railway boxcar, or one of the circus's elephants who is constantly chained and disciplined with steel-tipped bullhooks, everything.

"I'll gladly bare my skin if it will help expose Ringling's abusive treatment of animals," says Dang. "The best way to stop this abuse is for people to boycott Ringling and other circuses that use animals."

Where:  S. Rock Street and President Clinton Avenue, Little Rock


When:   Thursday, November 20, 1 p.m.
