    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.
