I think its awful when they have elephants, rinos and other big animals cos theyre not given them the care they need. where the fuck are you supposed to put the elephant??? it belongs in the jungle not a god damn cage! now some circuses actually DONT have animals and i likr them, but the majority are a disgrace and should be band. Those animals should be in the wild , running around for miles, where they belong, not in the back of a truck.

I don't think the animals care
they're fed, they aren't beaten, and that's good enough

what, should they go back to the safe jungle with all of the animals in their trying to kill them?

they'll adjust

You've got to look at both sides here...Some circuses use animals who would not be able to survive if let out into the wild. I'm sure they're better off in a circus than dead.

some animals should stay in their home with their family but others should be put in the circus if they dont have a home and need proper food and stuff

I doubt that... I would MUCH rather dead then be being hurt and have to jump through rings of fire and when it's over get into a cage.

i think, im not positive, but i think in most countries those circuses would be illegal. in the case of animal abuse. but a lot of cirscuses that have performing animals, they do take care of them. i mean, yes sometimes, to travel from place to place, the animals would have to be shoved in small trailers etc. but on the whole, i think they're kept quite well.

Elephants aren't in the jungle... They're in the safari, and soewhere in India as well. They're only found in Africa and Idia.

Sorry to correct you, just had to.

I think it depends on the animal...and what situation they're in..like Thrills&Chills said above. ^^

But then again, we won't know..because we can't read their minds. It's like people. Some like to be free and run around...others like to follow the crowd, fit in etc.

Hey, I'm middle-of-the-raod for once! Not having been to a circus in oh, 6-7 years now, I don't really care about them that much. So now that I've spammed up this thread, I'm gone! Pax.

Zoo's and Safari parks can't help every animal out there...Do you know how much it costs to keep an Elephant or a Tiger? They just can't afford to do it.

90% of circuses are cruel and abuse animals, but there are exceptions. If any of the animals were captured, then it is cruel and inhimane, if they were bread in captivity, then it could possibly be ok.

Animals like humans, plain and simple. If an animal is born in captivity it grows up around people and they enjoy the company, they like performing, it gives them confidence and they think they are doing something good. Sadly, people take advantage of this and abuse the animals and let them live in horrible conditions. Most animals in circuses are treated awfully and its very wrong, however there are some that put the profits to good causes and take care of there animals very nicely and it is a win, win situation, however that hardly ever happens.
