ADI Launches Stop Circus Suffering Billboard Campaign in Bakersfield, CA

Posted: 2 August 2013. Updated: 2 August 2013


ADI and supporter Stephanie Esla have launched a new Stop Circus Suffering billboard campaign in Bakersfield, CA. The billboards will run throughout the month of August, 2013 at five Bakersfield locations, showing residents the abuse that circus animals suffer.

“Most people are compassionate and would never knowingly support the abuse of animals,” said Jan Creamer, ADI President. “But many are unaware of the hidden cruelty, for just a few minutes of entertainment. ADI’s new billboard campaign aims to lift the curtain and tell ordinary Americans the truth. Like many others, we believe they will walk away from these shows.”

Stephanie Esla: ”Thousands of Bakersfield residents will see this billboard, giving them greater insight into the terrible suffering of circus animals. When families find out about the routine abuses that go on behind the scenes they will be shocked and will not want to expose their children to this cruelty.”
