Sedgwick Urges New York Mayor To Ban Circuses

Actress KYRA SEDGWICK has written to New York Mayor MICHAEL BLOOMBERG, urging him to ban animal circuses from the state.
The star was appalled by a recent People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals undercover investigation that exposed how Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus beats its elephants with heavy, steel-tipped bullhooks, and felt compelled to do something about the cruelty.
Sedgwick hopes the Mayor takes note of her concerns and rules this summer's Ringling Bros. Coney Island stay is the circus' last in New York - and also acts to keep the beasts safe while they're in his state.
The Big Apple native writes, "Please do your part as New York's mayor to minimise the misery that these gentle giants are enduring this summer in Coney Island. There is no room for animal cruelty at this wonderful landmark."
