Letter: Circus concerns
What has struck me ever since learning that the circus was coming to Hillsboro on July 9 was not the parking problem but the lack of opposition to the circus itself.
I personally am against the use of exotic animals in circuses and am shocked that I am the only one so far to come forward and say so in opposition of this event. I am disappointed that the Lions Club would sponsor an event of this nature. We should be teaching our children to respect and protect animals, not promote those who would brutalize them.
If you look up animal cruelty along with the name of this circus on the internet, you will understand why I think it is a mistake to allow this show in our town.
