Circuses Should Not Use Animals
Animals should not be used in circuses. The environment where they perform and their living conditions are usually inappropriate with them.
Animals used in the circuses do not perform their natural environment. Tigers, for example, which naturally in wilderness and their preys, must perform trick on a narrow stage’s and spend their lifetime in small cage.
Besides, the living conditions of the animals are poor. They live in such cramped conditions most of their time. They actually need plenty space to roam. They also do not have freedom to live with their own kind.
Therefore, in the 21st century, it seems unnecessary and even cruel to confine wild animals and train them to do tricks for the public’s amusement.
