Circus Animal Cruelty: Abused for Entertainment

As a kid my mother never took us to the circus. While it had some to do with lack of money, it was mainly that mum was against animals performing on cue. As a kid I never understood this. As an adult, I saw my first and only circus in Moscow when I was 20. I got it. Watching bears ‘perform’ made me angry. Who the hell wants to see an animal do unnatural acts? Why is that entertainment? Are we so twisted as a society that we condone this?

Yes, I’m angry about this. Say no to animals in circuses.
