Original TLC member CHILLI decided to STRIP DOWN and STRIPE UP for BEATEN, LONELY And ABUSED: BOYCOTT THE CIRCUS, the new campaign from the concerned folks at PETA!!!
"There's so much cruelty behind the scenes, which is a something that a lot of people don't get to see. They're being mean to them to make them do this trick .… And I think that everybody needs to be aware of what's really going on."
"If you can raise awareness to something that's important, such as this, then you should. Because I know for a fact that I would never want to be in a cage."
"Circuses deprive tigers of everything that is natural and important to them, including interacting with their families, foraging and hunting for food, and roaming for miles. Tigers used by circuses are locked in small cages and warehoused in traveling boxcars, where they are exposed to extreme heat and freezing-cold weather.
These unnatural and stressful conditions lead tigers and other big cats to become ill, despondent, and increasingly agitated, endangering other animals, circus workers, and attendees"
