• Yes, it is good for them.

    I think they should be a source of entertainment because it provides them with a home and they are also provided with food. This also protects them against the wild and against many predators.
    It can also be used as a source of entertainment as they will feel safe and secure in the circus.

  • We should understand.

    No. It is exploitation. Even though some circuses claim that animals enjoy performing and that animals are treated well, overall, the practice just exploits animals that are typically meant to live in the wild or at least in a zoo habitat that resembles the wild. Being trained to do tricks for other people's entertainment is a form of slavery.

  • Animals are awesome

    We need animals in the circus as they are so much fun and they entertain you so much more than what a circus with no animals would. I agree that some circus's may treat their animals badly, but most do not, so why ban all circus's with animals when only a few circus's do the wrong thing. A solution would be to ban the circus's that treat their animals badly, but not all.

  • Yes, let animals perform!

    Everyone loves the circus. And what child doesn't love elephants? Ringling Bros. Seeks to preserve elephants with their Center for Elephant conservation and circus elephants have on average, longer life spans than even zoo elephants. It is good for them to be enriched with performing. The animals are well taken care of and animal rights groups seek to exploit these issues to stir up trouble and fundraising. 4

  • Yes it's brill in the citrus

    Because they are protected and the circus is very funny and entertaining they have nice owners If they are endangered it might save them! I think that animals have fun in the citrus and enjoy parading around I think that small animals probably have a better life in the circus. I think it's unfair on our country that want to see them perform because some countries allow it

  • Animals are treated well

    The circus animals are well fed, and they have friends and owners who look after them. They are happy and they have a home. When they are trained, that are given a break between tricks. When they perform, there is a different crowd very night and they are treated with respect.

  • Animals are treated well!

    Although the animals may not be in their natural habitats they are fed well and are treated with a load of respect, also it can be a chance for children to see wild animals that they may never see again. I say that it is perfectly fine for the animals to perform!

  • Animals are not being hurt

    Animals are having a fun time. Unless the circus owners are beating and abusing their animals then there should be no problem. No animals are being down right mistreated and abused in the circus. The animals themselves seem to enjoy performing in the circus and it makes children happy. Like little old sue.

  • My own opinion

    Yes because makes the audience more engaged and more interested but if there isn't it isn't that amusing. Plus animals doing tricks is awesome. So that is what I think you guys might think something else though this is what I think. My opinion. What do you think yes or no

  • This is physically abusing the animal.

    The animal need a lot of training and it isn't easy, what is the animal attacks someone who is responsible for the animals action?

    Also you are not keeping them in free space its to crowded for them to move. You are whipping them because of them not listening to you and that's hurting them and no one likes getting hurt physically


    From 1994 to 2005 at least 31 elephants have died. I think that seeing people perform their tricks is just fine.

    #1. Animals born in circuses are NEVER released back into the wild.
    #2. Trainers use whips, bull hooks,clubs,and electric prods on the animal would you like to be treated that way?
    #3. Animals spend about 11 months a year traveling almost half a year. They spend thousands of countless hours traveling over long distances, being forced to lie or stand in their own waste
    #4. In the wild animals live freely and walk or run many miles for food, in the circus they are given unfresh food instead of being able to hunt and are being forced to spend hours being trapped in limited space instead of being able to roam freely.
    #5. If an animal is endangered, you want to protect it, so having these animals here cant help it grow of reproduce.

  • This is wrong so wrong no way

    Animals were meant to live I the wild not circus tents. All I can say is how would you feel if you we're taken out of your home and put in a cage to learn party tricks? No you wouldn't would you you'd be taken away from your family, your home, your life, your everything.
    Animals should no way be used in circuses!

  • Animals are Innocent

    We should not take their freedom, they have life they have to choose how they want to live. We should not force any animals to do something because in the process we humans torture them which is against the nature. We should not entertain people by torturing speechless animals. Please please do not encourage CIRCUS.

  • Animals are not clowns!

    I personally believe, that animals are meant to be wild and free. I do not agree with animals being in Circuses, because that is not their nature nor their habitat, so it is like having them in prison.

    I am pretty sure that they are abused physical and emotionally, I truly believe that animals do feel more than we actually want to recognize.

    Allowing animals to perform in circuses, commonly cause that those animals act against their own trainers, in other cases, hurting innocent people around them.

    This is something we can avoid, letting the animals to be at their own habitat, and having people with specials skills who can entertain us at circuses.

  • Animals are nice.

    Animals are not to be treated like low level beasts they are equals so support people that don't want animals in circuses thank you.

    The cat sat on the mat and it did a big nap all the animals in the circus are treated unfairly and they should be treated with care so support

  • All you have to say is no

    All the people out get on there phone go to peta or rspca to look at what they do to the poor poor animals the whipping and the minimal space they get I just couldn't think of the people who support the cruelty all you have to do is say NO

  • They should not be subjected to pain and cruelty and they deserve to be in the wild because that is their natural habitat

    They are not being fed to being cleaned cages are not being cleaned and they are not being rested they stand on their own waste they are wiped they are traped for dayes on end they have no proper living facilities and they are stay at the risk of having diseases and when that happens they are not given medical attention

  • Its unfair for them

    Animals are being killed chained and beat up with a stick how would we like it if we were taken away from our homes and being put in cage? We wouldn't like it would we so why are we putting animals in cages they are mammals too so why are we treated so differently

  • Treat animals like humans, cause they are

    In circuses, animals are being abused by whips, tight collars, muzzles, electric prods, and bull hooks. These animals are not performing because they think it's fun and enjoyable. Instead, they are performing because they are afraid of what will happen to them if they don't. When they are not performing or rehearsing they are locked up in a cage that is not suitable for their size. Elephants are even chained! They are mammals too, we are mammals too, therefore they should be treated like how we are treated.
