These noble animals are tortured and abused to make money. Some people are uninformed and some just do not care as long as their kid gets to see an elephant roll over. The truth is these animals live a miserable life and circus trainers are ruthless and have no sense of compassion to how they mistreat these confined and controlled animals. They do NOT belong in a circus. These days need to be OVER. Circuses need to be shut down and circus animal trainers need their steel whips taken away! They have abused their animal training rights and this needs to end once and for all. Enough animals have suffered so these people can make a buck. Something drastic needs to be done. They were just fined 270.000. It's a start  but this will not stop the abuse. These beautiful animals need to be respected not tortured!!!  please sign and pass this on. Animal abusers don't stop abusing just because of a fine!  Circus Elephants need out voice*

      A Circus is no place for an animal! I tell everyone about the abuse of the animals and never attend.

      I can't stand for another elephant or any other animal in the circus to be beaten or chained up again.

      Abuse of a almost extinct species is unnecessary for money or entertainment purposes.

      It isn't family 'fun' for the animals, it's abuse!

      Animals are not ours to torture, abuse, or make to suffer in any way. Animals in the circus are beaten and starved into submission. If our Heavenly Father had intended for them to do stupid human tricks, they would be doing them out in the wild. Circuses are nothing but hell on earth for animals and therefore ALL of them should be shut down forever. Thank you
