Although their success in the U.S. is only just starting to grow, in many other parts of the world, the members of the German rock band Tokio Hotel are already bona fide superstars, with millions of albums sold worldwide. Of course, thanks to peta2, you’ll be able to say that you knew about them first. Check out Tokio Hotel’s PSA to learn more and then take our pledge to boycott circuses that use animals!
Here is a video interview of those two stars:
The band’s lead vocalist, Bill Kaulitz, said, “It was sheer cruelty—it was that.” Tokio Hotel guitarist (and Bill’s brother) Tom Kaulitz added, “I hate zoos and circuses. People shouldn’t take their children to either one.”
We couldn’t agree more. Animals in circuses are denied everything that is natural and important to them. Taken from their mothers only a few weeks after birth, baby elephants are tied down, locked in chains, physically and mentally abused, and struck with sharp metal bullhooks, all so that they can be forced to perform unnatural and often painful tricks. Animals are not here for our entertainment and do not belong in cages or circus tents. The tragic loss of many animal and human lives in circuses has proven this point.
