I will never take my kids to the circus. *edit*

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Because I don't support the way they abuse animals. I would however, take my kids to protest outside.

Edit-

I have to say that I am very impressed by the amount of cafe momers who are educated about this matter and do
not support the circus. Great job!!!

There will always be people who do not care, but it makes
me happy that a good majority of you
do!


edit 2-

I am NOT and never ever will be a member or a supporter of PETA!! So please don't assume that because I support animal rights, that I am one of them!

Cirque de soleil (sp?) Is amazing!! I will take my kids to see that for sure!

I'd take mine to a circus of only human performers. It's sad the lack of respect so many humans have for animals.

Isn't it? Just makes me sick how humans have no compassion for animals.

i'd love to go to a circus again. animals seem to have more defenders than children do these days, and that is sad

I can't remember if they're animal free or not, but they are what came to mind. It'd be great if there was a humane circus of rescued animals that love performing. They could donate proceeds to animal shelters and vets who help low income pets! Does that exist yet? Lol.

Not me. I'm a social worker. I fight for children's rights every single day.

I agree 1000000% My children have never been to the circus. The methods used to "train" those poor animals is disgusting. I WILL NOT contribute to that. EVER!
