NGO One Voice is fighting to save hippopotamus Jumbo

For 30 years, Jumbo has been living in a circus. He is left all alone in a truck and supposedly goes out only 30 minutes a day. NGO One Voice followed the circus all around France and is fighting to save him.

    Lucky him. Most dairy cattle in Canada don't get out at all...

    If the authorities agree with you why isn’t your police force helping with this situation?? I don’t understand!! Who cares what the circus owner wants. He only sees $.

    He didn't understand anything, this guy. The future of the circus is no longer here. In the past, the circus used to show animals in the countryside and in the cities that no one had seen, that no one knew. THIS TIME IS OVER! Do something else, circuses ! If I want to see wild animals, even without moving my ass, there are webcams in hundreds of animal reserves, there are documentaries and eventually, although I am divided on the subject, large zoos where tigers are not forced every night to get on a stool. Go to the circus, people, enjoy yourself but don't go to circuses featuring wild animals. Let die these ones.

    My daughter asked me why I never took her to the circus. She is 25 years old ....I told her because it called ANIMAL ABUSE ....

    Offer the owner enough money and he will sell Jumbo. He will probably use the money to buy a new and younger hippo and then you will still have a cause.

    Animals were not born to perform for us. And they do not belong in circuses. Forcing them to do so is extremely cruel and unnatural. Every country should ban animals in circuses. And the animals already in circuses need to be rescued and sent to reputable sanctuaries where they can live the rest of their lives in peace. #Breakthechains #Emptythecages #Dontbuyaticket

    Aqui no Brasil não mais usam animais em circo. Uma lei que foi respeitada.
