 (CIRCUS ANIMALS EXHIBITED IN CONFINED CAGES) 

                             by Lars Ole Mortensen

   I HAVE ATTENDED CIRCUS EVENTS OVER THE YEARS. I have stopped attending  FOR GOOD REASONS AS I WILL MENTION HERE. THE LAST CIRCUS I ATTENDED WAS IN CALIFORNIA ABOUT 15 YEARS AGO. I NEVER EVER SUPPORT AND NEVER WENT TO ANOTHER CIRCUS SINCE AND NEVER PLAN TO AGAIN. WHEN I VIEWED THE EARLY MORNING SET UP AND THE ULTIMATE TEAR DOWN, OF THE TENT AND THE ARRANGING OF THE ANIMAL CONTAINERS " CAGES '' I WAS VERY UPSET. I WAS ESPECIALLY UPSET TO SEE THE PENNED UP, TIGHT, ENORMOUS 3,000 PLUS POUND BLACK RHINO CAGED IN A VERY UNCOMFORTABLE SMALL CAGE, A CRAMPED NARROW CAGE. THERE WAS NO ROOM FOR THE RHINO TO MOVE HIS HEAD OR BODY IN ONLY ONE POSITION, LOOKING FORWARD.       

THIS BLACK RHINO DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH SPACE TO MOVE OR LAY DOWN.  I OBSERVED THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE TIME THE CIRCUS WAS THERE IN MY TOWN. THE POOR CREATURE, THE MAJESTIC BLACK RHINO, WHO ONCE ROAMED FREE YEARS BEFORE WITH A FREE RANGE IN AFRICA. NOW, STUCK, DESTINED TO LIVE A LIFE OF CONFINEMENT IN A 1/2 HALF SIZED CARGO CONTAINER, HIS ONLY VIEW WAS THROUGH BARS AND PEOPLE LOOKING AND POKING THE RHINO. .. I APPROACHED VERY CLOSE TO THE CAGED RHINO AND AS I LOOKED INTO HIS EYES, I SAW TEARS COMING DOWN HIS FACE AND I HAD THE FEELING I HAD TO DO SOMETHING...I FELT POWERLESS. I AM SO GLAD THAT THERE IS AN ORGANIZATION LIKE CHANGE.ORG IN OUR LIVES ... I WANT TO EXPOSE THIS TRAGIC BEHAVIOR OF EXHIBITING FOR THEIR PROFIT. THIS BLACK RHINO COULD NOT OR DID NOT HAVE SPACE ENOUGH TO MOVE HIS HEAD AROUND AND MOVE AROUND IN HIS CAGED ENVIRONMENT. IMAGINE AN ANIMAL, WHICH GOD CREATED AND WAS BORN TO ROAM FREELY LIVING DECADES LIKE THIS? PLEASE...PLEASE...PLEASE HELP OUR CAUSE TO STOP THIS BEHAVIOR OF EXHIBITING ANIMALS IN THIS BARBARIC WAY.
