Animal Circuses belong in the past, they do not have a place in today's society. Exposure of the cruel techniques used in training is undeniable proof of why society should band together to end this spectacle of medieval cruelty.

Zade W.
Australia (Queensland)

I believe animals should not be used in circuses, not just because it's cruel and unethical, but also because it's unnecessary as Cirque De Sole have proven. The circuses may be ran by nice people, however the animals suffer serious physical and mental health problems from transportation and captivity and scientists have proven through the measurements of cortisol and other observational and chemical tests that animals suffer from stress and anxiety and many other health problems, all just to entertain humans and make the owners some profit, which they could be making through human circuses or other business! :)
Tanya H.
Australia (NSW)

The circus is about amazement, talent, and fun. Cruelty to animals is none of these!
Jasmin B.
Australia (South Australia)

I'm sure that the people who are for animal circuses would feel different if it were human beings being confined and chained in order to entertain. Animal circuses are never ok.
Malwina B.

SILVANA M.
Australia (NSW)

actors, spectacles to imprison and gawk at, or circus clowns. Yet thousands of these animals are forced to perform silly, confusing tricks under the threat of physical punishment; are carted across the country in cramped and stuffy boxcars or semi-truck trailers; are kept chained or caged in barren, boring, and filthy enclosures; and are separated from their families and friends—all for the sake of human “entertainment.” Many of these animals even pay with their lives...WOULD YOU SWAP YOURSELF WITH THESE ANIMALS?

Using animals in circuses is cruel, exploiting them for profit. Performing in circuses is fine for humans who have a choice, but NOT for animals who don't have a choice.
Sahara F.
Australia (VIC)

animals are not ours to be confined and used for our entertainment..how would you like it if you were caged whipped bullied in to performing tricks for nothing... they deserve to be free like anyone else and any other animal. how would you like your child taken from her home and then trained and caged to entertain humans..so why do this? you are disgraceful
Leah F.

It is not fair to use non human animals for human fun!
amanda s.
Australia (vic)

What people get joy out of forcing an animal to live in a cage and act UNNATURALLY for our entertainment? These animals would NEVER stay if they weren't being forced and tortured and had no chance of escape. This is cruel beyond words and anyone who thinks otherwise should experience the horrific treatment of spending life in captivity and working in a circus as a slave and see how they feel after that.

Use of animals in circuses is archaic, disgusting and just plain cruel! Why do we need animals in circuses when there are plenty of fantastic circuses that involve humans performing? Eg. Circus Oz and Cirque du Soleil.

Clara C.
United States (Indiana)

Animals do not deserve to be taken out of their natural habitats to be tortured and tormented. Animals do not act the way that circuses "force" them to act and it is not safe or healthy for the animal. These creatures deserve to be free and not trapped in cages and terrified throughout their daily lives.
Juan A.
