Circus Removes Boxing Kangaroo Due To Protests


(Oxford, MS) The circus is coming to Oxford but Jack the Kangaroo won’t be boxing or “play-fighting” with a clown. 

Advertising for the match brought criticism from PETA and others so the event was cancelled. 

The owner of Star Family Circus said the boxing match is a clown routine and in no way cruel. 

The kangaroo will still be a part of the show, just not in a boxing match. 

The circus is February 13th at the National Guard Armory.
