I`m sorry Puff but you won`t get me to think otherwise
Many zoo animals are kept in worst conditions (Dudley Zoo in the UK for example) and I don`t want to turn round and tell my daughters that they can`t go to see it because of some do-gooders views
Argue with me about it all you want, but please do it by PM as someones personal views should be just that........ personal ;)
Well when I replied to the original post I hadn't realised the circus came complete with animals. I saw the advert on TV last week and couldn't believe that in this day and age they are still allowed to perform. Have to say I agree with Puff the Dragon and don't like it at all. It's a personal thing I guess but there we are.
And lastboyscout if you think a circus without animals is boring then that's a shame. I was lucky enough to see the Moscow State Circus before leaving the UK and was amazed at the brilliance of it and there wasn't an animal in sight.
I usually steer clear of debates on here but couldn't on this one as i totally agree that paying to see this will make sure this kind of 'entertainment' continues. Yuk.

Its only become a debate since someone posted their personal opinion so I posted my thoughts
Someone elses opinion should be kept just that ..... personal , not thrust upon others to try and change their own views
If I posted my personal opinion on here, it would take no time at all before I got banned , so I have to bite my tongue ;)
And I`m taking my kids to see the animals in the circus because in the UK I was taken to do the same when I was a nipper, I loved it, but the ` PC brigade ` over there stopped my kids from seeing animals performing, I hope they will love it just as much as I did.:)
When they are older and wiser and can form their own opinions, they will be respected and supported in whatever they believe in, if they say to me when we are there that they don`t like animals and they look unhappy then I`ll take them away from it , not when someone is telling me they are treated badly and I shouldn`t go because of it ;)
So you never been to a zoo then???? Exactly the same thing, animals locked away for our entertainment????

as for circus animals that is some thing people should agree to disagree instead of getting political
Hi, i went to the circus on Saturday and i have to say the animals played a very small part in the show and i didn't really feel that they performed as such, i felt they were just on show and led around the ring. The children enjoyed being able to see them, i myself am not keen on the thought of animals been made to do tricks and things that are not natural to them. I believe that there were strict guidelines set down regarding the animals and their freedom to roam before permission was given for them to be able to hold the circus in adelaide. I found out that snippet of information when i was searching for the circus online to be able to book my tickets!
