Should the circus be legal?

Ringling Brothers Circus received a land donation at Coney Island for the summer. Watch this video. Then- do you think circuses should be legal? Do you think people should protest?

Caution - obscene language and disturbing video.

  • I saw the video was from Peta, so didn't bother to watch those militant bunny-huggers.

    Leave Ringling Brothers alone!

  • I didn't watch the video but I don't like circuses. I do feel it is a hard life for the animals. I think the traveling in confined spaces is horrible. Being forced to perform is just sad. Last time I went I felt depressed when I left and never went back.

  • We don't do circuses with animals in our home. They are too depressing.

  • Talk about judgmental!!! How can you judge something if you don't watch it or know what you are talking about? this video is heinous. Nothing to do with PETA - It is actual REAL training FOOTAGE!

    Shame on you judgmental moms!! Any person with a heart would see this as illegal, unnecessary torture of living beings. Geez, where is your compassion?
