Actress & Hip-Hop Singer Hard Kaur in PETA Ad in Sexy Ringmaster Outfit

Hard Kaur in PETA Ad

Mumbai, April 25, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio) Animals Are Involuntary Performers, says Patiala House Actor and Iconic Hip-Hop Artist Hard Kaur.

To make the people aware about the harsh cruelties inflicted on the dumb species, Hard Kaur posed for a new PETA ad wearing black fishnet nylons and a sexy ringmaster outfit next to the caption "I Choose to Perform. Animals Don't. Boycott Animal Circuses”. Kaur, the first Indian female rapper and PETA whipped the circuses which force animals to perform unnatural and often painful tricks through this ad on World Circus Day.

Animals in circuses are subjected to chronic confinement, physical abuse and psychological torment. Whips and other tools – including ankuses, which are heavy, sharp steel-tipped rods – are often used to inflict pain on animals and beat them into submission. Animals perform confusing, unnatural tricks – such as riding bicycles, standing on their heads or jumping through rings of fire – not because they want to, but out of fear of violent punishment. Even when they aren't performing, animals in circuses suffer a lifetime of misery. Their access to water, food and veterinary care may be severely restricted.

Talking against such cruelties Hard Kaur says," Animals are not born to ride bicycles or do other stupid things for human entertainment; it distresses them. Animals are meant to be loved and respected just like we are. I think circus animal trainers would sing a different tune if they were the ones being whipped, caged and chained every day."

Though the Indian government has already banned the use of bears, monkeys, tigers, panthers and lions in performances but PETA India and  Hard Kaur requests the government to follow the lead of Bolivia and Greece by banning the use of all animals in circuses.
