Circus’s around the world are slowly shutting down, as fun and happy as they look, due to footage and claims that are being leaked about the brutal business that goes on ‘behind the scenes’ and what is hidden to the general public.
The living conditions for the animals are horrendous and they are forced to perform in ridiculously un natural ways. If not they are usually beat, killed or sold off to the next ‘businessmen’.
Sadly in Indonesia these circus’s still are very much alive. The Oriental Circus which is shockingly run by the owners of one of the most famous Zoo’s in Indonesia. These people claim to care about animals and want to ‘educate’ yet they use this circus as just another income. These people should know better then anyone else!
Elephants as well as a Chimpanzee and Tigers are being forced to perform cute but extremely un natural tricks which is discomforting for the animal.
We have witnesses that have seen that these Elephants are chained throughout the day and night and hit with bull hooks to make them perform. You are able to see the marks on these poor animals.
The lone adult chimpanzee is dragged around the circus ring on a neck chain and forced to ride a motorbike.
We are all about animal education and everyone wants to see these amazing creatures with their own eyes, but it must be done in the right way with the animals benefit being the first priority. As usual, people continue to exploit them and use them as ways to gain profit and this ‘Oriental Circus’ is just another example.
Please sign the petition and ask the Indonesian Government to end the use of wild animals by removing their permit, until they stop using wild caught animals in their acts, once signed .. Please share. Thank you!
