“I choose to work in the entertainment industry, but animals in circuses and other traveling shows are never given a choice,” Casey says in the PSA.

“This industry tears families apart and subjects individuals to a life of torment and deprivation,” Casey said about circuses. “[Trainers] drag the big cats around by heavy chains or ropes around their necks and hit them with sticks, poles, and whips. They beat them mercilessly and bully them into jumping through hoops.”
