An Edmonton animals rights group says it's wrong for Rexall Place to allow the Shrine Circus to perform there.
Members of Voices For Animals protested, holding signs and handing out pamphlets, outside Rexall Place during the circus performance over the weekend.
The group charged that the animals in the show are abused and exploited. Diane Charkiw, the director of Voices For Animals in Edmonton, organized the protest.
"We are wanting to create awareness [of] the conditions the animals in this circus endure," she said.
