I did not take my children to circuses that had animal acts. Take away the profit factor and this ends.

How can anyone not see that these animals are being abused and exploited?? It just seems so obvious that this is NOT what animals are SUPPOSED to do!!

Animals don't belong in circuses, zoos or anywhere that people can make money or abuse them!

This isn't entertainment. It is just abuse and exploitation.

I went to one circus fifty years ago. I could never see what others saw in it. Barbaric.

Cockfighting, like dog fighting has to be seen to degree as a mental or emotional disorder by the psychiatric community.

Noted, tweeted, shared. A lot of this is done out of ignorance; we need to educate the public that circuses are not fun places for animals.

The only reason this abuse happens is because ignorance pays to see this believing it's entertainment!

I banned the circus 25+ years ago. Don't miss it. Won't ever take a child to one.
Thanks for sharing :")
