the_happy_healer 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.

11 months a year they travel over long distances in box cars with no climate control; sleeping, eating, and defecating in the same cage.

When allowed out, these animals are trained using extreme "discipline" such as whipping, hitting, poking, and shocking with electrical prods.

Even though the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) sets minimum standards of care, most itinerary stops are not inspected.

Do your research & stop supporting the circus. Cruelty is not Entertainment.

ryderkingwild Beyond the curtain unveils the torment of depressed animals controlled by whips, sticks, metal bars, hooks, and electric prods. A life of confinement, deprecation, and abuse masked behind the illusion of the adornment and sparkle of the show. Circuses are freak shows of depressed animals torn from their nature world. We claim to be civilized yet we continue to allow the suffering and abuse of animals all for the ignorance of human folly. Cruelty is not Entertainment.
Don't Buy A Ticket. @ringlingbros

iansnailham Old style cinema, with the screen behind a red curtain and an intermission for ice cream... It takes me back to my childhood. The only thing missing is the ash trays. #cinema #brynamman #behindtheredcurtain #missionimpossibleroguenation #film 1mon

sonnenblume1985 Ich bin so happy, wir haben uns heute Lenas neue Kita angeschaut, die ist so toll und ich bin mega froh das sie so kurzfristig einen Platz für sie frei haben
Ich hatte mir schon Sorge gemacht das sie erstmal zu Hause sein müsste nachdem Umzug, aber die Leiterin hatte mir den Platz schon telefonisch zu gesagt und heute wurde der Vertrag unterschrieben. Jetzt kann ich den Punkt beruhigt von der unendlich langen Liste streichen
Danach ging es noch zu DM und diese hübschen Schätzchen aus der neuen Catrice Theke durften mit so wie 2 Sachen aus der aktuellen LE, die zeig ich euch dann ein anderes Mal
Schönen Abend ihr Süßen

james_montague Tonight I got to see a man who taught me about shapes, how to tell time and stories I will never forget. He was cheeky, interesting and had me laughing the whole night. Full circle complete. #playschool #simonburke #johnwood #philipquast #behindtheredcurtain 2mon
