Los Angeles to ban wild animals in circuses — 4 Comments

  1. I’m thrilled that this is gaining momentum along with other causes such as declawing. My disdain for circuses and zoos is well known.
    This decision doesn’t necessarily mean that there won’t be places where wild animals can be seen. These circus animals will have to be placed somewhere, hopefully at upstanding wide open sanctuaries where they will feel free and safe. They can’t be released into the wild.

  2. its sad. i remember going to Ringling Bros & Barnum Bailey Circus as a kid & i loved watching the animals perform. i had no clue what they did to them to get them to perform, or how they lived away from the circus. im glad that they r no longer harmed & all, but i do wish there was a happy medium where people could see the amazing things they can do without them having to suffer or being exploited. maybe im naive the think that there is, oor could b, some way to do that. i guess i think since there r so many animals that r endangered, etc & need to b protected that there would b a way to do that safely where everyone benefits. where kids can see these magnificent animals up close(relatively), see how they live, etc, while still allowing them as much of a degree of autonomy as possible. maybe that will never happen as long as there r people, but it still hope so cuz i LOVE tigers & got to see them n the circus & n zoos. they were endangered when i was a child back n the 70s & they r worse of now if im not mistaken. i hope my grand-kids will b able to see them for real & not just some virtual experience. ah well, c’est la vie! heres to dreaming!!
