Making impressive exotic animals perform demeaning tricks is a form of trashy entertainment that belongs in the 19th century, and it should stay there.

The poor creatures are captured and made to "perform"...then, when they do what comes "natural" they're shot for being a danger to the handlers and society. It's sad :(

I strongly support banning all circuses in the US everywhere the animals are not being treated good, to much wrong going on and these animals make the money are the show and still abuse, neglect, small confinement and it foes on absolutely not what bevel a circus should represent Let the wild animals return to the wild and live out their normal way of life as it was and should intend to be

I watched an old Joan Crawford movie "Beserk" the other nite, and the circus scenes of the lions "performing" really showed how much they hated it, causing me to wonder if they medicate those used in the horror house they call "circus" today

Circus,s are Hell for Wild Life. They have NO choice. Human entertainers have a choice and are usually gifted performers. Wild animals should be in their natural environment. and their safety ensured by rangers etc. Many animals are fast becoming extinct thanks to stupid,greedy excuses for human life. Imagine if animals ruled and humans had to perform tricks to entertain them? Same difference.!
Wild Animals are sentient beings and exist in their own right.,they DO NOT NEED our permission.

Martin Luther King Jr. is quoted as saying, “Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”
