Kelly Miller Circus has been torturing animals since it started in 1938. Recent allegations of animal abuse witnessed by many people cited an eyewitness’s report of seeing a handler repeatedly whip zebras during a performance. One of the zebras almost fell out of the ring. Another eyewitness also claimed seeing another handler forcefully striking a small dog on the face. Also, when the camels and zebras were not performing, they were “tied so tightly and close to a trailer they could barely move.”
The Kelly Miller Circus has been cited for denying veterinary care to animals, public endangerment, and other Animal Welfare Act violations. A staff member of Kelly Miller Circus was charged with raping a 14 year old attendee of the circus. Parents aware of the rape charges have withdrawn their support of the Kelly Miller Circus and refuse to let their children attend any of their performances.
Recently, an eyewitness at Kelly Miller Circus caught a female elephant being beaten until she screams. Like other animal circuses who torture animals, Kelly Miller Circus is very close to being shut down for good.
