Atlanta – This afternoon, Yaarab Shrine’s Potentate Robert Hampton and different members received a shock in the course of the closing celebration of the shrine’s annual circus season when PETA supporters disrupted the occasion by shouting, “Finish animal circus acts now! Cease abusing animals!” and unveiled indicators that learn, “Elephants Crushed and Chained for Shrine Circuses.” Shriners surrounded the peaceable protesters, grabbed them, and pushed them—although they have been continuing to depart as requested. Shriner thugs then blocked the protesters’ automobile, stopping their departure till police arrived and allowed them to depart. Pictures and video footage of the disruption can be found right here.

The Yaarab Shrine Circus is without doubt one of the final remaining circus exhibits that also use wild animals who’re confined to small crates, stored in shackles, and disadvantaged of any semblance of a pure life. It has partnered with notoriously merciless exhibitors, together with Carson & Barnes Circus, which has been cited for greater than 100 violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act and whose head coach was caught on video attacking elephants with bullhooks—weapons resembling a hearth poker with a pointy hook on one finish.

“PETA is set to see the day when the Shriners agree that elephants are to be revered, not chained, crushed, or pressured to carry out in circus exhibits which can be merciless and outdated,” says PETA Govt Vice President Tracy Reiman. “We’re upping the ante in urging Yaarab Shrine to cease selling big-time cruelty beneath the massive high.”

On Monday, Yaarab Shrine will host a celebration for members with summer season birthdays—together with Hampton—and to mark the event, PETA supporters in poop costumes will make a stink exterior and ship a cake that reads, “Robert Hampton, Cease Treating Animals Like Crap.” The back-to-back celebration disruptions are an escalation of efforts to steer Shriners to chop the cruelty from all chapters’ circuses, following Moolah Shrine’s announcement that it dropped elephant acts.

PETA—whose motto reads, partly, that “animals should not ours to make use of for leisure”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For extra info, please go to, take heed to The PETA Podcast, or comply with the group on Twitter, Fb, or Instagram.
