“The Shrine Circus has returned for its 25th year at Havasu 95 Speedway in SARA Park, but according to some activists, everyone is enjoying themselves except for the animals. More than 20 picketers arrived at the circus’s entryway on Wednesday to protest the circus’ treatment of animals.
The event is hosted by Jordan World Circus, of Las Vegas, with a portion of proceeds going toward the Lake Havasu City Shriners Club. A collection of elephants, tigers and other exotic animals are provided to the circus through independent contractors. Protestors allege the use of electronic prods in the training and control of exotic animals within the circus, and seek a boycott of this year’s event.”
