No, I will never take my child to the circus. There are more animal friendly and equally fun ways to entertain children.
Go to Cirque Du Soleil...It's beautiful.
I have to agree that circuses with animals are just cruel. I have protested my share.
|The animals at the circus we went to where very well taken care of and seemed happy.
Well, the animals always seem taken care of and happy to the audience. What circus keeper is going to abuse the animals in front of the thousands of ppl who paid good money to see the show? And to me, no matter how well you treat an animal for entertainment, you are still using that animal for entertainment. An elephant's home is not in a ring with bells and whistles...he doesn't deserve to be caged and made to perform on cue. He should be in the wild where he belongs and is happy. It's a form of slavery if you ask me.
