I would never visit a circus that has performing animals. They are most definetly treated cruelly and abused. Animals are not meant to perform unless it is because they want to and throughly enjoy doing so. I am shocked, hurt, angry and annoyed at the way these elephants are being treated and this video should be given to the animal welfare police so their suffering is ended and placed in a decent care. Please someone, please get these poor beautiful elephants out of these nasty peoples care...

Shrine Circus escapes the scrutiny of governing bodies such as the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and local animal control agencies by not owning the animals used in its shows or possessing an exhibitor license. The animals are leased from outside companies, including Tarzan Zerbini Circus*, George Carden Circus*, Jordan World Circus*, Hawthorn Corporation*, Royal Hanneford Circus*, Franzen Bros. Circus*, and Circus Hollywood*, so Shrine Circus is not subject to citations...

Shrine Circus escapes the scrutiny of governing bodies such as the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and local animal control agencies by not owning the animals used in its shows or possessing an exhibitor license. The animals are leased from outside companies, including Tarzan Zerbini Circus*, George Carden Circus*, Jordan World Circus*, Hawthorn Corporation*, Royal Hanneford Circus*, Franzen Bros. Circus*, and Circus Hollywood*, so Shrine Circus is not subject to citations under its name. Each Shrine Temple produces its own circus, so animal exhibits will vary from temple to temple and from year to year. Exhibitors of Shrine Circus-leased animals have failed to meet minimal federal standards for the care of animals used in exhibition as established in the Animal Welfare Act (AWA). The USDA has cited Shrine Circus exhibitors for failure to provide veterinary care, adequate shelter from the elements, nutritious food, and clean water, as well as failure to handle animals in a manner that prevents trauma and harm and ensures public safety. Animals used by Shrine Circus have caused deaths and injuries. Contact PETA for documentation. ~~~~><))'>

I would like to think we humans as a society have gone beyond the need to see animals performing ridiculous acts. these animals belong in the wild.

No animals deserve to be treat in this manner. They are all God's creatures, just as we are and have the right to be FREE. Shame on those who are guilty of this kind of mistreatment that are so horrific I can't bear to even think about ever going to any circus. Those men/women who mistreat animals no matter how large or small should be in prison for such heinous acts. Let the animals roam free as they were meant from the moment they were created. I am not referring to pets that many of...

I am not referring to pets that many of us have. We treat our pets as our children and love them. They know we love them and would never harm them. The elephants and other animals in circuses only know of MISTREATMENT. They should know KINDNESS and LOVE. Seeing them in a zoo is bad enough because they are in cages or behind fences.

Do you really sleep well at night knowing that what you are doing is wrong, inhumane and just plain disgusting. Would like to see you spending every day the way these beautiful animals do, and lets see how you like it. Its disgraceful. I agree with Virginia, if your circus was any good you wouldn't need animals. It out dated and people do not support it anymore. Animals are not there to be treated this way....

We should start a protest when they start the shows....i mean it awesome allowing your kids to see these great animals _ WHAT DO YOU THINK THE NATURE RESERVES ARE FOR. I honestly dont care if anyone takes this personally, if you go see a circus where animals are involved you are supporting their abusers, attackers, and horrible owners..... ooops did i say this out loud!!!

Animals don't need us, we need them, but needing them is not using and abusing them. They are so innocent and unaware of humans capabilities. Possibly an awful thought, but when I hear of a tiger or lion attacking a circus performer/trainer, I feel more sorry for the animal as it had revenge eh and had to do something....had enough.

I took my children to see the circus. We never went again after what we saw. My daughter was young and loves animals. It broke her heart. Perhaps, we did not understand what was going on but it didn't seem right. I love everything else about the circus but I love animals more.
