The Shrine Circus is in town for it's annual visit. Sigh. I don't remember going to the circus even as a child, and I'm certainly not about to start anytime soon. Lonely animals in small cages, forced to do tricks for our "enjoyment". Why? We don't keep the clowns in cages but they perform tricks for us... (oh, how much better I'd feel if clowns were locked away). I hope the Shriners get rid of their animal acts and focus on a cruelty free show - magicians, acrobats, and other human acts - there's no need to include animals in their shows.
You can contact the Shriner's by e-mailing them and letting them know how you feel too.
