Alec Baldwin Gives a Voice to the Sad Tigers Caught in Circus Captivity

Posted on

After writing down his own story, Alec Baldwin is focusing on telling the story of Tyler the tiger.

In a new ad for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Baldwin explains the tragic life of a baby tiger ripped away from his mother and forced to perform in circuses.

Sadly, it is a story that is all too familiar. While the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey circus has closed, there are still many other circuses with captive animals operating around the world.

Suzy, a former Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey circus tiger, recently died during a transport from where she was being temporarily held in the United States to a new circus in Germany. Even after “retirement,” many of these animals are still being used for entertainment purposes.

PETA and Baldwin hope by raising awareness about the life a circus animal endures, animal lovers will boycott circuses until they adopt routines that do not include animal entertainment.
