Circus animals are almost always mistreated by the circus.
~Did you know that they often use spiked hooks and dig them into elephants' skin to dominate them? And if the elephant gets out of hand, usually it is gunned down and killed. ~With traveling circuses, animals travel in boxcars or trailers for days without the things they need like food, water, and care from vets. It is also usually either very hot or very cold. ~Tigers and lions usually are stuck in cages 4 ft X 7 ft X 7 ft, two cats in each cage. ~The Latest Shows on Earth%u2014the Cirque du Soleil, the New Pickle Family Circus, Cirque %uFFFDloize, and others%u2014are exciting and innovative circuses that dazzle audiences without animal acts. ~Visit http://www.circuses.com/pdfs/AnimalFreeCircuses.pdf for a list of animal-free circuses. ~Some communities have already banned circuses that use animals.
