    I am very unhappy to read that a live-animal circus is being presented and sponsored in Springfield. The Walker Brothers operation is known for exploiting animals to the point of violating even the most basic standards set by the USDA. This is something that no one in Vermont wants to be associated with. Most visitors and tourists from the Northeast who vacation here will be shocked (as I am) to discover that Vermont is willing to be associated with such an outdated and insensitive use of animals for entertainment.

    The Springfield Regional Chamber of Commerce should be ashamed of its association with this enterprise.
