Tens of thousands of terrified wild animals are being forced to entertain crowds with unnatural tricks and feats in circuses, zoos and safari parks all over the world. Behind the scenes, they are abused, neglected and malnourished.
The techniques used to force animals to perform are cruel and abusive. Most receive little or no vet care and when not performing, they live in barren cages or cells.
Circuses have no respect for the behavioural, ecological and conservational needs of these animals. Worse still these performances are often aimed at children. Animal cruelty is a terrible lesson for any child.
