Hey, ALiberation, that's impressive stuff. Hope the demos went well. Is this the end for Duffy's?

Its about time Circuses with animals were a thing of the past.
Think about it...if there was enough human talent, animals would not be needed to prop up the lack of talent in their shows.

Its incredible what those animals have to go through, a life of her, just for the sake of entertainment.
India, Greece, Ecuador... have already banned animal circuses... Wouldn´t it be nice if Ireland was also one of the pioneers.
We have to evolve towards a more compassionate society.
Great job Aliberation. I stand with you!

Humans do not need to use other sentient beings for anything - not for entertainment, not for clothing, not for testing drugs and chemicals on, and not for food. Other animals are hurt when they are used by us, and our use of them violates their rights. The essence of veganism is non-violence, and respect of other animal's right to freedom and to live their lives for their own purpose, not for the purposes we choose for them. Using animals in circuses is unnecessary and cruel.

It is time that all circuses stopped using wild, captive animals in their horrific acts. Some circuses have already stopped the use of animals and it is time for Duffy's to do the same!
Thank you Aliberation for highlighting this important issue. Let's become a civilised society for God's sake!
