While the world begins to see the ugly face of animal circuses, circus owners and marketers are scrambling for news angles and justification for the ongoing use and abuse of captive, wild animals.
Here are some examples of just how ludicrous McLaren’s Circus’ justifications are, displayed at last weekend’s Knysna showing and protest.
Mind you, someone from the circus must have seen the absurdity, as these posters were taken off the entrance gates after the first performance, never to reappear.
Simply because circus masters, trainers and supporters tell us they love, care and value their animals, don’t take their word for it. Scratch the surface, dig a little deeper and one is sure to see the disturbing truth behind animals used for entertainment.
A kind thanks to Penny Foyn for these photographs!
