Though-out this paper I used resources from sociologists and even a parent whose son was a well-known serial killer. I was able to see how a parent thinks when their child is the one performing the abuse. I also found out many parents will say that their son or daughter is just going through a phase.
Circus Cruelty Enjoy the Circus? Life under the big top is not the "wholesome, fun-loving, educational experience" the circus industry would like you to think it is.
For the animals, life is a monotonous and brutal routine of boredom, stress and pain. In short, traveling animal acts perpetuate animal cruelty, inhumane care, public safety hazards and distorted images of wildlife.
Circus animals are confined virtually all of their lives in barren conditions, while forced to suffer extreme physical and psychological deprivation: Virtually 96 percent of their lives are spent in chains or cages. When allowed out, these animals are trained using extreme "discipline" such as whipping, hitting, poking, and shocking with electrical prods.
Wild animal acts also pose a significant threat to public health and safety: Circus elephants may carry tuberculosis TBand can infect humans with the bacterial disease. Public records show that many circuses have used TB-positive elephants in public performances.
Circuses are not required by law to carry emergency euthanasia equipment and local law enforcement agencies may be forced to deal with a loose animal. Since the s circuses have been responsible for over human injuries worldwide.

By spotlighting captive breeding programs in North America for animals to be used for entertainment, these circuses do nothing to raise awareness of the wild elephant's largest threat today-human encroachment into elephant territory and loss of habitat. Sending the wrong message to our children There was a time when a circus may have represented the only exposure a child had to a wild animal.
Today our children learn early in school, and through such programs as on Animal Planet and The Discovery Channel, that wild animals live complex and fascinating lives, and have natural instincts, developed over thousands of years.
When kids see the negative messages circuses send, it completely contradicts these lessons.
The circus industry claims that it only trains animals to do the types of tricks they might naturally perform in the wild. In reality, animals live their lives looking for food, sleeping, or raising their babies. Costumed bears lying on their backs spinning giant balls, tigers jumping through flames, or elephants walking on their hind legs then balancing on their heads, are not natural behaviors.
When circuses portray unnatural and inaccurate images of how wild animals live and act, in such an unrealistic context, this creates a greater disconnect between people and wild animals, promoting the notion that it's acceptable, even enjoyable to exploit animals for entertainment.
Circuses perpetuate an outdated attitude that wild animals are ours to use at any cost to their welfare-an attitude that PAWS, other animal protection groups, wildlife organizations and zoos work tirelessly to counteract through outreach and education.
