category waterford | animal rights | news report author Tuesday August 01, 2006 21:13author by Alliance for Animal Rights Report this post to the editors

Another VEGAS Circus Attack in Waterford.

Yesterday Monday 31st July early morning.Waterford.

. A well known animal protection worker/rescue person was set upon on the New Ross /Wellington bridge Rd by two Vegas Circus staff. The lady is Seventy Six years old and was pasting anti circus flyers over the Circus posters to alert people to the cruely that performing animals endure.
She was in the process of doing this when two men, an Italian and a tall fair haired man shoved her to the ground and held her arm behind her back.They threatened her and proceeded to break up a bicycle she had with her .Gardai Reports are being made.
Vegas are now at a site in Tramore.

We think this behavior is deplorable and although this is collectively the 4th attack by Circus people within a week on activists, the perpatrators are getting away with impunity.

The same is happening in Holland where animal rights activists (plural) on a grand scale (this is effective) hold banners and hand out fliers and even get into mainstream news. ( you see it is effective in numbers). You let one old woman hold up the banner for your whole country? HEY GO AND HELP HER NOW!

Doesn't matter how many activists there are, the circus and their heavies will still attack. Even non-nationals can't approach the circus box office without their car being kicked and threaten with stanley blades. Just goes to show how barbaric circuses really are. If they are prepared to beat up an elderly woman, imagine what they do to the animals.
The workers attack and then are driven off in jeeps with blackened out windows. They return when the cops are gone.
We've witness one circus owner attacking an elephant with a garden rake. The same owner threatened the cops with their lives and wasn't even arrested.

the attack reported on above reflects the disgusting cowardly nature of animal abusers - and it proves, again, the link between those who mete out violence to animals and those who do the same to people.

I sincerely hope that the perpetrators of this attack do not get away with it.

Fair play to AFAR and all people fighting for an end to animal abuse.

Terrible.

Violence is never acceptable.

I do think that she provoked them by interfering with their posters.

She should not have posted over their posters.

I hope she has made a formal charge.

Circus Vegas cause nothing but trouble where ever they go. It took some nerve for a 76 year old woman to do an action like this. She deserves an award for her bravery. Well done.

You make a reference to non nationals not being able to approach the box office. Any circus people I have seen in the last 5 years have all been non nationals! What exactly is your point???
