Avoid Promoting Animal Performances

As with Avoid Photos with Compromised Wild Animals we know some animals are kept captive for a reasonable purpose, for rehabilitation or rescue purposes, which are acceptable. There are however situations and venues which keep animals captive for tourism purposes only, which are not acceptable.

Public shows involving animal performances such as circus’ and cockerel fighting are subjecting animals to suffering and cruelty, which should be avoided being watched and participating in. These attractions subject animals to cruelty and suffering during performances, not to mention being put under stress that could be avoided. 

You can still enjoy circus’ of other natures where people are performing, as it’s their decision to perform, whereas animals performing for entertainment purposes is not by their choice. 

If you come across animal performances when travelling, aim to decline attending these attractions, for the sake of improving animal welfare.
