it's a hard call, actually - elephants, for example, have been domesticated and bred as working and performance animals for generations, and like horses appear to get genuine pleasure from performing. big cats and rare-animal exhibits are another matter - few if any of them are psychologically equipped to handle travel and strangers well. i think well-developed and overseen regulation at the UN level is a more workable - and doable - answer than attempts to spot-ban an international practice.

Ja! Tiere wie Elefanten, Bären oder Affen haben in einer Zirkus-Vorstellung nichts zu suchen.
Nein! Ein echter Zirkus braucht neben Akrobaten und Clowns auch Tiere in der Manege.
