I'm not one to engage in activism much, but something came up at work today that I couldn't resist acting on.<br><br>
In our kitchen, they sometimes leave stacks of coupons or flyers for various things for our employees. Today, they had discount tickets for some circus coming to town in a couple of weeks. It had a picture of performing elephants, and a note about "elephant extravaganza". Since nobody else was in the kitchen with me while I was heating up my lunch in the microwave, I took the whole stack of tickets and tossed them in the trash. And I covered my tracks with a couple of paper towels in the trash can on top of them, just in case somebody happened to glance down there and notice them.<br><br>
Now, none of my coworkers will see the tickets and be tempted to take some of them and go to that elephant torturing circus.<br><br>

Ha...I've done stuff like that before. Like the rodeo flyers I see on grocery store billboards. "Well nobody needs to see this garbage" *riiip* "Here's a better one" *hangs a pro veg sign*<br><br>
Censorship? Yep. Hypocritical? Damn right it is. But that's how I roll.

Do all circuses hurt their animals?</div>

<br><br>
All circuses which use animals promote the idea that animals "belong" to humans and can be exploited for our entertainment. Regardless of whether whips or spiked sticks are used to train them they're still being harmed in that regard.

As someone who used to perform in a human-only circus, I can answer this one. Yes, all circuses hurt at least some of their animals. I still have scars from my time with the circus - some of that stuff is physically grueling! It's just that the human animals take it voluntarily, while those that employ non-human animals don't give their 4 legged performers a choice.<br><br>
