Tell the USDA To Enforce Animal Welfare Act Against Cole Brothers Circus

Urge the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to act against the Cole Brothers Circus, for its apparent role in an elaborate scheme to evade federal law by helping an animal handler exhibit animals even though his license was revoked by the agency.  Since losing his license in 2009 for horrific violations of the Animal Welfare Act (AWA), including animal deaths, a cast of shady characters has been playing a complicated shell game to keep Lance Ramos Kollman illegally in business.  The USDA is seeking to revoke the licenses of the exhibitors who have been helping Kollman, but so far the Cole Brothers Circus (which does not have its own license) has escaped any accountability or responsibility. In fact, this circus has a history of AWA violations and of working with abusive animals handler.

Take Action for 1,000 Pigs Starved to Death

Please call on the Fulton County District Attorney to prosecute the owner to the fullest extent of the law for the egregious crime of shutting 1,000 pigs in a barn and allowing them to starve to death. These animals suffered terribly before they finally died.

Contact the realtor and let her know that starving animals to death is not “very normal,” that it is animal cruelty that must be prosecuted.

Hi, I'm Rachel and I've been active with NARN as long as I've been vegan 13 years! I made the choice to be vegan after learning about what happens to egg laying chickens and dairy cows. I had previously been vegetarian for 7 years because I finally made the connection that beef came from cows and pork came from pigs (duh, I know). I didn't want my food choices to cause the death of an animal. It just seems like common sense to not eat animals if you care at all about animals, the earth or your fellow human beings. I became active with NARN because after I found out about the atrocities happening to animals, I felt that I had to do what I could to help stop these injustices. NARN is local, puts the animals first, and networks with other groups. We aren't worried about getting credit - just helping the animals. One of my favorite quotes is: "I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all." ~ Leo Rosten and "Progress in every age results only from the fact that there are some men and women who refuse to believe that what they know to be right cannot be done." --Russell W. Davenport
