PETA Gets The National Guard To Cancel A Cruel Circus Act

| Filed under: PETAAnimal Cruelty

The Liebel Family Circus was going to perform several shows at National Guard armories in Arkansas.

Luckily PETA stepped in and wrote a letter to Major General William D. Wofford of the Arkansas National Guard and explained how the circus's owner, Hugo Liebel has been hit with almost three dozen violations of the Animal Welfare Act.

Immediately realizing he didn't want the National Guard to be associated with such cruelty, Major General Wofford cancelled four scheduled performances.

Hugo Liebel is a cruel man with a long history of animal abuse, from tying down or chaining up animals to the point where they can't move, to literally beating them with bullhooks and electric prods.

We are so glad that PETA stepped in and was able to send a message that animal abuse will NOT be tolerated.
