    All circuses need to end using animals to be exploited for entertainment and money. The abuse of these poor animals needs to end. It needed to end a very long time ago. We are beyond these times and need to change for the sake and well being and freedom of these animals. Past suffering and suffering shouldn’t be in vain..It needs to end. We need change and we need it now. All animals deserve love, freedom, and happiness. Circuses do not provide that. End of story. My heart breaks for all of them.
