The twins Bill and Tom Kaulitz of Germany's internationally most successful rock band Tokio Hotel to protest with an elaborate photo opportunity for the use of animals in the entertainment industry: "Slaves of the entertainment industry: from out of the circus! Wild Animals" is the slogan with which the musicians for the first time now participate in a PETA campaign.
In chained and blood-smeared Bill and Tom show in dark surroundings. The subject is published internationally: in addition to Europe, it is also seen in the U.S. and Asia.
"You just have to imagine sometimes that animals be held so long, her life,"said Bill, "with circus animal performances should be banned, there are plenty of interesting alternatives!"
Specifically, the musicians do parents who have their children go to the circus, often with this design also appeal. "Especially parents need to develop an awareness here." says Tom.
The two vegetarians also wonder about the Federal Government: On 17 October 2003, the Federal Council unanimously sent a clear signal to the federal government and in a resolution to ban wild animals in the circus (especially elephants, monkeys and bears) voted. The federal government still does not move and makes animal abuse to continue!
A recent representative survey of the Society for Consumer Research in Nuremberg (April 2010) clearly shows that two thirds of the population of wild animals in circuses are no longer timely. And the Federal Animal Medical Association in April 2010 clearly spoken words, and animal welfare reasons, the prohibition of wild animals in traveling circuses called out.
While European countries such as Austria, Denmark, Sweden, Bulgaria and others have long since imposed a ban on wild animals, the federal government remains passive and thus ignorant of animal suffering.
Many celebrities have already supported a ban on wild animals.
