German rockers Tokio Hotel have joined a campaign to ban animal circuses from their native Germany. Bandmate brothers Bill Kaulitz and Tom Kaulitz appear chained to a column in a filthy cage in hard-hitting new billboards for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals as part of an animal rights campaign to highlight the miserable lives circus creatures endure.

As a result of the campaign and other efforts to keep circuses out of Germany, officials at the nation's Federal Chamber of Veterinarians have called for a ban on the use of wild animals in traveling circuses.

Back in 2008, the two rockers have expressed their complaint over T-Pain's entrance at the MTV Video Music Award, which involved circus performers. Bill commented, "It was sheer cruelty - it was that." His brother Tom chimed in, "I hate zoos and circuses. People shouldn't take their children to either one."
