Time of year to avoid the circus

It’s that time of year again folks, come one, come all!

Come and enjoy the exotic animals that spend their lives being trucked around the U.S. in what I am sure very “great” conditions.

I do not know what blows me away more … that this “circus” is still allowed in Everett, or that the attendance justifies its return every year. I would like to know if these attendees have ever seen a Cirque show. These shows showcase only the finest acrobats, comedians, and performers. All without the exploitation of animals that belong in the wild or a zoo at least with a nice habitat.

My family and I for one will not be supporting this “circus” and I urge local residents to join in.
