Growing up as a kid, we have known all about the different performances in a circus. Children tend to be excited when seeing their favourite animals performs some trick. However, like any other kind of entertainment business, we don’t know what is happening behind the scenes. There are instances where some people are surprised why there are some organizations that are fighting for the animal circus bans. If we would know the truth behind the curtains, I bet we would all cry for a ban. Here are the reasons why animal circuses should be banned for good.
- Animals are not prisoners
We can all hear the loud cheering from the crowd if we see animals perform but what we can’t see is how they are suffering because of the kind of life they have to live. Animals are happy to go out and give you a great show because it is the only chance they have to be free from the prison bars where they are placed.
- Animals don’t deserve the punishment
In an animal circus, what we can see are the performances that have been practiced numerous times. How do you think these animals learned all those? The training that they have to endure is not like the ones we give to our pets at home whereas we just give them rewards. The animals in a circus have to go through painful training where being hit seemed to be a normal process.
- Starvation and Dehydration
The circus owners would say that they are feeding the animals, but we all know that the food they give them is not sufficient for their needs. The animals don’t get enough food and water which are the essential things they need to have a healthy life.
With these three reasons alone, the usage of animals on a circus should be banned forever. No living creature deserves the kind of life these circus animals have to endure.
