I belong to a group on FB that shares events going on for families in my area. They were posting about tickets for the Shrine Circus. I can't believe parents are still taking their kids to see circuses with wild animals! Who doesn't know by now that this is wrong?
Wild animals belong in the wild. It breaks my heart to see elephants chained up, beaten, and forced to do stupid tricks. These are magestic animals, that are very social animals, that need miles of open land to roam. They're also endangered species. When you see them swaying from side to side, that is because they are stressed. How can it be fun for you to take your child to see exploited and abused animals?
