LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Members of PETA, Animal Lovers of Louisville and the Louisville Vegetarian Initiative staged a protest in response of the use of animals in the Kosair Shrine Circus.

Their goal was to encourage people to boycott the circus because they say the animals are mistreated.

“The wild animals that perform here today wouldn’t do so unless they were forced to through intimidation, dominance and violence,” PETA and Louisville Vegetarian Initiative volunteer Samuel Hartman said.

Protesters said they aren’t against all circus performances, just the ones using animals.
