Circus fundraiser creates social media outrage in Streator

Posted by wlpo on September 12, 2016

When it comes to a circus, do you think they are harmless fun for the family or are a place where animals are abused? There’s plenty of push back against a circus coming to Streator.

The Streator Community Center is bringing in the Kelly Miller Circus on September 27th. The center provides an outlet for kids in Streator to hang out in a safe and fun environment.

The center has put a message on its Facebook page saying “it has come to our attention that several people are upset that the SCC is sponsoring the circus.” They say the circus which also has stops this month in Granville, Marseilles and Leland does not neglect or abuse its animals.

Still several people are lashing out at the circus via the community center’s Facebook page.
