    Cruelty and exploitation are the dark side of animal ‘entertainment’ – it’s no wonder those in charge of it hate transparency: it makes them lose money (and be reviled).

    I rode an elephant at a festival as a small child because my mother was running the event and told me to do it. It was probably as terrifying for me as it was for the elephant and I still feel guilty about not throwing a fit and refusing. These are intelligent, highly social creatures who deserve better. Wild animals are not for our exploitation. Since then, I have not attended or supported (nor will I ever) a venue that includes wild animals–no zoos, no circuses, no festivals.

    Never have and never will. There seems to be less and less compassion for our fellow sentient beings. I hope one day that humans will learn that non human animals were NOT put on this earth to entertain, be worn or eaten.

    All animals must be treated with all respect. We should take care of them instead of riding, beating, torturing, hunting and mistreating them.
