BAN THE USE OF ANIMALS IN IRISH CIRCUSES

Animals from circuses in Ireland have been abandoned, let loose on public roads, and have been rented out for late-night hotel parties. We ask you to consider the life of a circus animal: chained, caged, forced to live in cramped and totally unsuitable housing, and hauled from town to town in a “beast wagon”? Regardless of the number of generations that wild animals have been in captivity, captive-born wild animals do not lose the instincts and needs of wild animals. They retain their natural instincts to socialize and to roam freely.
Circuses deny captive-born wild animals of their need to exhibit their natural behaviors.Our concern is the disparity between the conditions imposed on wild animals by circus life and the environment that these animals need for their emotional and physical well-being. Life in the wild cannot be replicated on the back of transportation trucks or at circus sites around the country.

      I was horrified when my son came back from his Irish relatives telling me he'd been to the circus and what the animals were subjected to. I had no idea this barbaric practice was still happening in Ireland. Put an end to animal suffering now.

      There is no place for the use of wild animals or domestic animals for entertainment in Ireland.

      Animals were not put on this planet to be cruelly forced to entertain humans. These beautiful creatures should be in suitable environments and treated with love and respect these intelligent animals deserve. How dare humans poke and beat an animal to perform monotonous tricks. Animals give us unconditional love no matter what! The least they deserve is to be loved and treated kindly in return!!!

      These beautiful creatures of God's creation are going through hell on earth, 24/7 at the hands of these circus people. Heartbreaking
