Ringside Seats for a Spectacle of Cruelty
Animals don’t want to ride bicycles, stand on their heads, balance on balls or jump through rings of fire. Elephants, big cats, monkeys and other animals used in circuses perform tricks because they have no choice.
If circus audiences knew the truth about the violence and suffering that goes on behind the scenes, they would find these shows anything but entertaining.

no “like”, as I hate seeing wild animals in captivity and I also know about animal cruelty in circuses… 😦
Thank you Mélanie. I understand what you mean. Although, by clicking “like” you would be liking the fact that I am trying to spread the word to people who are actually unaware that they have been deluded into thinking that animals in circuses are well cared for and that they actually enjoy “performing”.
Thanks to the internet, there is an increasing realisation of the suffering that animals have to endure at the hands of humans.
You have actually inspired me to post a PETA article with a more positive outcome. I will do that in my next post. 🙂
Thanks for this!
