Protestors Urge Deerfield Residents to “Skip The Circus”

Published 09/20/07

When the Kelly Miller Circus arrived in the village of Deerfield, IL, local protesters encouraged everyone to skip the circus. Besides stressing in detail the abuse suffered by animal performers, protesters raised another safety concern, citing on their website an incident last summer where an employee of the circus was convicted of rape charges involving a 14-year-old girl who attended a Kelly Miller Circus performance in New York. Deerfield therefore amended Kelly Miller’s circus permit to include a background check on all employees who would be spending the night. After learning this, the Kelly Miller Circus informed the village that it would pack up after the last show and move on.
