Circuses are cruel. Those animals are on the road constantly, living in tiny cages, and whipped into submission. It sends a terrible message to our children. Elephants and tigers are in peril worldwide and we should be teaching our children to respect these animals, rather than sending them a message that it is OK to "train" these animals to do silly tricks. And animal-free circuses are so much entertaining and higher-minded anyway!

      This is so ridiculous!  Why cannot animals be animals?  I simply cannot fathom why human beings are so obsessed with making animals perform acts that are so alien to their nature.  Humans have become so selfish and so self obsorbed with their pleasures, wants and desires, that the last vestige of humanity, compassion and consideration for fellow beings, who have every right to their freedom and life, seems have just vanished!  Circuses and other places which (mis)use animals as commodities to make money have to be closed for good.
