To the people that say these animals are not abused. This is pure miseducation and plain ignorance on your part, or maybe you just have no heart. All you have to do, since you obviously have access to the internet is google or youtube (which has undercover people videotaping the cruelty which these animals endure during the training.) Shame on you, I can't believe there are so many ignorant people still that turn a blind eye to this kind of stuff. Why not teach the children how to treat animals, and teach them about animal cruelty. And to one of the above comments..I understand that if circus's stopped, these animals wouldn't be release back into the wild, however they would go to a sanctuary(which they have done when other circus's have closed) however if there was NO demand for this type of entertainment then the demand for these animals would stop. You have to start somewhere, and stop this cycle.
