    The circus world has had its day and is coming to an end as we humans have become enlightened to the suffering of circus animals. As humans, we don’t have the right to enslave other creatures and force them to perform unnatural tricks, and, worst of all, neglect and abuse them into submission.

    I agree with Ramona Cholak Jenks (above) Well said
