INFO On Circuses

"The idea that it is funny to see wild animals coerced into acting like clumsy humans, or thrilling to see powerful beasts reduced to cringing cowards by a whipcracking trainer is primitive and medieval. It stems from the old idea that we are superior to other species and have the right to hold dominion over them."
—Dr. Desmond Morris, anthropologist, animal behaviorist, author

All I had to do what type in Circus. The idea of this
'Circus' coming to town , in not about 'which' circus
it is. It's not about who owns it , or manages it.

It's about the fact it is ethically wrong, at times abusive
the way these animals are treated.

I have included the link in the post just click on it.

We did not attend the last 'Circus' that came to town
and we will not attend this one.

I think they can expect the same type of controversy
regardless of whom they get.

They need to stop looking for the easy way out, and the
fast bucks, and pick a ethical fundraiser, even if it means
working for their money.

This is not what large animals were created for.
By attending this is telling your kids its 'o.k.' to
mistreat and abuse animals. Simple.
