Animals in Entertainment: Cruel Spectacles

Published 02/21/08

From Pedicab News: "Although many of us may have fond memories of a day at the circus when we were young, we are largely unaware of what those amusing moments for us cost the captive animals in a lifetime of abuse that is hidden from the public." The video on the website linked below shows elephants riding tricycles in an Asian circus, with reference to the campaign of Born Free USA united with API. "In Thailand," continues the text, "as in many other eastern nations, elephants have been used as work animals for centuries. However, since the Industrial Revolution, their use in industry has been justifiably diminished, but exploiting them for enslaved showmanship serves no useful purpose, at all."
