Ban on circuses: Should animal circuses be banned?

  • 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

  • Animal circus should be banned

    They should be banned because they should enjoy their environment. Like how would we like it if they took a family members from us and we can't communicate with the animal to see if they are happy or not. We shouldn't be allowed to take animals circus away because we don't know where they have came from.

  • Animals should be banned from circuses!!!

    Animals should be banned from circuses because they are trapped in cages, away from their habitats and are put in dangerous situations, which is really harmful for animals. Even if humans enjoy watching them, they don’t think about whether or not animals are enjoying themselves.
    Animals are trapped in cages, before and after their part of the show is done. The cages don’t have that much space, which also makes them really uncomfortable and there is less oxygen. For example, when the part is done they have to go inside their cages and respect their owners. If they don’t, they will be punished.
    Animals are force to leave their habitats and are taken away from their homes. They have to leave their families behind in the wilderness alone. Sometimes they even have to leave their babies alone when they don’t know how to do things and still need their mother. Some animals like to hunt for food but, they can’t hunt for their own foods. For example, when a circus owner sees an animal with talent they just capture it.
    While doing really hard stunts animals can get hurt. Animals have gotten many bad injuries because of these stunts. They are also abused physically while being trained for the stunts they have to do in the circus. This can also be harmful for humans because sometimes when an animal gets angry it starts to attack the audience and host. When the trainers hit them they can also get angry and attack.
    To help stop animals from having to be part of circuses you will have to go to them and explain it to the owners. You can go to and subscribe, as it will have more information and tell you how to save animals lives. You can also protest to free the animals from zoos, circuses, and more. If animals are free they will be more of them and they will feel happier.

  • Here are 3 reasons why

    OK fist circuses punish animals if they do not want to perform they will be punished from whips, electric prods and muzzles etc and second animals will be separated from family and friends which is just wrong third reason they have to move from place to place and live in cages and when they do get out they are forced to do things they arent suppose to do

  • They torture animals

    I HATE PEOPLE who work in circusesd h h h h h h h h h hh h h h h h h h hhhh h h h h h h h h h h h h h hg g hgh gh g hg h g hg h g hg

  • Yes of Course

    Circuses completely abuse ALL their animals. This is no generalization. Do some research and what you discover will make you feel the same way I do about this. Even if some circuses have their animals in "good conditions" the tricks they are forced to do are unnatural. Tigers naturally fear fire, yet they are forced to jump through rings of it. Being in the 21st century you think we could do so much better then this. Join me and STOP this terrible abusive action!

  • Yes they should be banned

    What have we done to them. They do not deserve to be harmed for there rest of there lives.We,people of corse will not want to be treated they way we treat them. I know its fun and intertwining but still we should banned animal circuses and trade them with regular circuses

  • 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.
