A Poodle circus from China is scheduled to perform in Singapore on Feb 2018 to welcome Chinese New Year - as quoted from them - "circus experience that includes breathtaking Kungfu diabolo, ring stunts, fun acrobatics, giant balloon acts, bubble show and funny clowns acts".

It is a well-known fact that using animals (wild and domesticated) for entertainment, especially in circus, is a severely archaic, cruel, and unethical practice. Singapore brands herself as a modern, forward-looking cosmopolitan global city. Having to chance upon this news online; to first-hand witness Resorts World Singapore bringing in an animal performance act and promoting animal cruelty is outrageously appalling and extremely disappointing. 

In circus, many animals are abused and punished daily in order to force them to perform. Physical punishment has always been the standard training method for animals in circuses. Animals are beaten, shocked, and whipped to make them perform—over and over again—tricks that make no sense to them. These animals are subjected to psychological abuse, physical abuse and coercing the dogs to behave through fear-based techniques.

Earlier this year in May, the world rejoiced over the closing of Ringling Brothers, an American traveling circus company that is notorious for using wild and exotic animals in performance, animal neglect, inducing high levels of stress, physical mistreatments, and cruel training methods. Allowing and promoting animal circuses in Singapore prove we are regressing and losing humanity in the process of being a progressive and animal-friendly nation. 

The truth is wild animals don't perform because they want to. They perform because they're fearful.  There are video evidences of animals subjected to cruel and vicious physical torture while "training" for their circus acts in China. Being in a circus for animals, is a nightmare for them.

Moving forward, please sign and share this petition to put an end to the inhumane and outdated practice of exploiting animals in the circus.
