More and more people no longer associate circus with watching animals pressured into abnormal behavior but love to see other humans perform amazing, daring, funny, and beautiful acts.

If you want to be amazed by a wild animal there are many ways to do this without harming this creature.

“We welcome the San Francisco Board of Supervisors’ recent vote to ban the use of wild and exotic animals in performances for entertainment.

The ban was approved and applies to circuses, backyard birthday parties and filming of movies and television shows. San Francisco is just one of many cities around the country that are increasingly making animal welfare a priority by keeping animals out of circuses.

Every day, animals suffer in the name of entertainment. They are snatched from their natural habitats and forced into captivity where they are often subjected to abuse – both mentally and physically. All of this happens behind the scenes, so the public is usually unaware that any of this suffering goes on.”
