Dear Editor of The Villager

Thanks for sharing the story with your viewers about circus performances that use big cats. Our web site gets more than 1,000,000 hits per day and our online polls give a very good sampling of the general population since most people come to our site for the keywords games and tigers. These are not keywords that are predisposed to attract animal activists so the poll samples could be considered an accurate reflection of the public opinion. The very highest percentage of pubic agreement is on the subject of big cats in the circus. 87% agree that be cats should not be made to perform in circus acts. The next highest percentage of agreement comes from subject of big cats at fairs in which 81% agree that big cats should not be exhibited at fairs.
