Leave it to PETA to ruin a good party. According to The Press-Enterprise, the traveling Ramos Bros. Circus this week was forced to move from its spot in Corona due to complaints from the animal rights activists. They argued that the show was violating a city municipal code that only allowed exotic animals in the city if they were used to educate or kept in a zoo. Wait, what? Corona doesn’t even have a zoo (closest one is in Orange County) and the circus is incredibly educational. How else will kids learn how petrifying clowns are or that these animals even exist outside picture books? Nevertheless, the big top relocated the zebras and camels to Perris until July 2, when they’ll be moving to Riverside. My advice? Drop them off at PETA’s doorstep for a while. If they think the animals are in danger (and with 24-hour care at the circus, they really aren’t), they can see how they like being responsible for a change.
