Buzz Petition

In what can only be described as horrifying, recent footage has been released showing a circus rehearsal going terribly wrong. The Taiyang Circus in the city of Cangzhou City, China was practicing a stunt in which a tiger and a lion were supposed to ride on the back of a horse. As we have learned from other circus catastrophe’s time and time again, wild animals belong in the wild, not being forced to do unnatural tricks for the sake of human entertainment. This sentiment was proven once again with the two big cats viciously attacking the horse.

The dreadful scene began with the lion lunging and biting at the horse which prompted the tiger to join in also. The poor horse was no doubt completely distressed, terrified, and in obvious pain, as it ran around the enclosure trying to escape. This innocent horse, nor the cats, should never have been put in this position in the first place. The circus staff whipped the big cats to try and get them to release their hold on the horse, only causing the horse to suffer more distress, and unnecessary injury.

A Care 2 Petition has been set up to end this cruel and irresponsible circus, noting that not only are circuses cruel to begin with, but putting prey and predator animals in the same enclosure is downright neglectful and inhumane. When asked about the events that unfolded, the circus spokesman responded by stating that these types of incidents are “normal.” That is a clear sign that something must be done to protect these innocent animals, circus-goers, and staff. What else needs to happen before this is taken seriously? Sign the petition to shut this circus down before more lives are put at risk.

As this circus rehearsal shows, more goes into these shows than what the audience realizes. While they may appear to be all fun and games, that’s hardly the case for the animals involved. Circus animals are typically kept in less than suitable conditions and are subjected to severe abuse and cruelty in order to learn “tricks.” The best way you can stand up for circus animals is to never buy a ticket. Once people stop paying for it, cruelty can finally stop.

ALL CIRCUS should be shut down and unlawful...... I have not attended a circus since I was old enough to realize what really happens to the animals that are entertaining you. Horrible places.....

I once saw a giraffe suck off and elephant cuck at the circus. Never been so appalled. I had the weirdest boner though.

i know the circus and stage life.. this is tragic and most likely due to improper training and trainer.. you want to cry for a single horse and not see two cats are happy... but when the us gov is trying to outright kill 100s of wild horses you turn away... the circus is fine. the cats are happy and over 100 horses passed by before you said a freaking word... human discharge is all you got
