Ban on circuses: Should animal circuses be banned?

  • Circus animals should be banned

    They should be banned as many circuses treat animals poorly such as not enough food or water, being made to do things they don’t want to. The lion and tigers in circuses can be wild and dangerous to spectators.Some circuses even paint elephants in white patterns. The animals should be given to zoos for safekeeping and large enough habitats to let them have more freedom. Even better still a safari park for people to see them and they can truly roam and be themselves

  • Animals should be free in the wild not locked, chained and tourtered to do tricks against their will and for what? OUR entertainment

    Most circuses are know for being very cruel and abusive to their animals . Evidently the Carson and Barnes care director was caught viciously attacking elephants with bull hooks and shocking them with electric prods. Trainers were also instructed to embed sharp metal hooks into the animals flesh until they screamed in pain

  • They mistreat animals.

    I see people posting on this site that "not all circuses mistreat animals" but some circuses WILL! People working typically aren't professional animal trainers, especially to train wild animals! We don't know what turn these will take, one moment they can be obeying all your orders then the next they can just snap on you.

  • Circus animals should be banned

    Circus animals should be banned due to the fact that we will never know if animals want to be their because of no real communication and possible "abuse" behind closed doors when an animal isn't doing what they are asked of although the animals don't really have to obey because they were abducted or bought from someone who went to the ocean and stole a seal or went to Africa and trapped a lion.

  • Yes i guess

    All the animals are token care of and i guess that all the animals are in good care and they feed them they seem fine i like animals and i think that that that that that that that that that that that that that that that that that that that that that

  • Animals should not be banned from circuses

    They’re poor and u need to show some respect to them because they’re living things . You should all think about how animals feel. Actually, animals are not punished that badly and they might be safer than fighting with others of their kind. They also are an enjoyment to children.

  • NOT taking care of the circus animals is ABUSE.

    The fact is that not all circus' take care of their animals and others do. This divides the circus. I be leave that there should be rules and regulations that ensure that the animals are protected and they are checked that they are well taken care of. Not all circus are abusing their animals and everyone should consider this.

  • No they shouldn't

    I don't think animal circuses should be banned because theyr'e just animals. They're not being killed or tortured. They get fed and everything, they basically live in animal paradise. All they need to do is give up their personal freedoms in exchange for security and life. That is all my dood.

  • Animals in the Circus isn't CRUELTY

    People say that having animals in the circus is cruelty. It is only cruelty if they haven't got the five freedoms that are expected. I find that it is only animal cruelty if they use wild animals. The use of wild animals in circuses is very bad because they are not of any use to the environment around them. If you take a wrong turn with them it would end badly. This wouldn't happen with tamed animals because they could be used to the environment and noise around them.

  • No I don't think so.

    Circuses typically only use a few animals in their show. Elephants, tigers and lions are the main ones. As long as these animals are being treated with care and not abused I think it is okay. If abuse is seen in the animals, then that particular circus should not be allowed to have animals.

  • No, They Should Not

    I believe it is possible for a circus to take proper care of their animals and I think it is important to ensure that they do. However, I do not believe it is necessary to ban circuses. Circuses are business models that entrepreneur's have had success with. People enjoy the entertainment as well.

  • No,animal circuses should not be banned.

    No,animal circuses should not be banned.Animal circuses may get a bad reputation because there are a few circuses out there that do actually abuse and neglect their animals but that should not keep the general public from enjoying the performances of circuses that are legitimate and above board in the way they treat animals.

  • No but it depends.

    Animal circuses should not be banned provided the animals within the circus are living in acceptable conditions. However the definition of acceptable conditions varies between each species. I do believe very large or aggressive wild species should be kept out of circuses. This is because they are not only putting humans interacting with them at risk but it is simply not possible to provide humane conditions for the animals. Take elephants for example, for many animal circuses elephants are the center piece, the main course, however if one thinks about the conditions elephants are subject to in the wild, circus life is highly inhumane. For one point most circuses can only care for a single elephant - Elephants are herd animals and need to socialize with their own kind to live a 'happy' life. And yet again, almost all, if not every animal circus, simply cannot provide for the vast amount of space elephants need to live 'happy' lives. Most ZOOS cannot cater for their spacial requirements! And again with big cats such as lions and tigers, these are wild animals, circus life can put them under a huge amount of stress which would invariably increase the likelihood of them lashing out at human handlers. Circuses simply can not provide the natural setting that these animals need to thrive.

  • No, animal circuses should not be banned.

    No, animal circuses should not be banned. I believe that animal circuses are a great form of entertainment for family units. They should not be banned, however, on the condition that the animals are not treated poorly. This would require the animal rights activists to keep an eye on living and eating conditions for the animals that perform in the circus.
