Would you take your kids to the circus?

My husband is adamantly against circus' because of how they ofte treat the animals. I am too, I guess, but I do remember the circus being fun when I was little. Do you go to them?

  • No, we do not go to the circus. I am against cruelty to animals. I could not enjoy myself or want my child to see the hurt and the pain that these animals go through just to be in the circus.

  • We go to the Shriner's Circus every year. So, Yes.

  • I haven't been to one in years, but the answer to your question is yes.

  • Took my kids several times, but your husband has a point. Might want to find a more mutually agreed upon activity.

  • I take my kids to the circus, Ringling Brothers is known for treating their animals very well (for being in captivity). I wouldn't go to the fly by night circuses though.

  • I really want to take them. The circus came through in March, but it didn't work into our schedule. Hopefully, it will next year. I'm not concerned about how they treat animals.

  • Yes, I will take him when hes a little older. Its so expensive now I want to make sure he remembers going!
