    I've just seen a poster for a circus and they are still using animals, loins, tigers, elephants, zebra, camels and horses. Now I thought there was a law in this country banning animals from the circus ring. I just can't believe that they can still do this.:mad5: :mad5: :mad5: :mad5:

    I haven't seen a circus with animals in for years, I don't like to see animals in a circus, they weren't put on this earth for our entertainment, what is nice about seeing an animal whipped to do tricks just for us to view. :mad:

    I thought the Circus where Ann the Elephant was recuced from working still uses animals in acts??

    Think it is very wrong in my opinion!

    i am really shocked:eek: i thought this was banned years ago:( we take little archie to the circus every year and he loves it, no animals of course, but the acts are brilliant and he loves the clowns:) they dont need to exploit the poor animals for fun, the kids definately dont need to see them :(
