Circus Performances Are Breathtaking But Behind The Beautiful Picture Hides Horrifying Animal Abuse
November 6, 2018 17:12
Animals not always have been in circuses, yet they quickly became one of the essential parts after their appearance. Although they certainly add up to any show’s presentation with all those mind-blowing, spectacular tricks, circus animal abuse remains a very controversial issue. Many people believe that such practice should’ve been banned from the very beginning, when the first animals appeared in the early nineteenth century simply for display purposes.
Isaac A. Van Amburgh is considered to be the first man to perform with animals, as well as the first animal trainer. Ever since, thousands of animal abuse cases have been documented: from neglect to physical abuse. How would you train a grown lion not to eat a human if not with the help of some form of violence against it? The history of animal abuse in circuses is absolutely disgusting.
