Many animals live their entire lives in a circus. Many taken from their mothers when just babies. Some of the cruelest treatment is seen in circuses. They spend their entire lives in fear of punishment. Forced to perform unnatural tricks all their natural behaviors taken away. Transported from town to town denied their families. Please say NO to Circuses that use animals.
When the ticket buying stops...
Baby Elephants their spirits broken with the use of ropes, bull hooks and electric shocks. Chained constantly only able to take one step forward and one step back, forced to perform unnatural tricks through fear and pain. This is their entire life.
Lions and Tigers Big Cats beaten and whipped into submission and forced to do unnatural tricks out of fear. Imagine the fear! They live their entire lives on the road imprisoned in tiny cages which they do not get out of except for the few minutes in the ring for a performance or terrifying training sessions.
Bears Taken from their mothers or poached for a cruel life in the circus. Denied any of their natural behaviors a life of misery and cruelty. For entertainment!
Dogs Although dogs are easier to train than large wild animals they are not immune from cruelty in the circus. They too live their lives transported from town to town. Their life is only about performing and making money. Man's best friend enslaved for life.
There are many more: Horses, Zebras, Hippos, Camels, Polar Bears, Monkeys - and the list goes on.
