Do you enjoy being beat, burned, poked with sharp objects, whipped, caged, or left in the streets to die? Neither do animals.
There are animals all around the world that are suffering everyday.
Is that fair? I certainly do not believe so!
Animals are like people; they feel pain, sadness, and anger.
Animals in circuses suffer a lot. Ex-employees have seen the animals mistreated and abused.
Elephants who perform in circuses are usually kept in chains for at least 23 hours a day from the time that they are born.
There are also millions of animals that are left out in the street with nowhere to go and nothing to eat.
How would you feel if you were treated like this?
Animals bring happiness to people, are good company, and are wonderful friends that will always stay by their owner’s side. So why do they have to suffer when they do no harm?
What is it going to take to put an end to this tragedy? Will more animals have to suffer or die until this ends?
Do not let animal cruelty go on, treat others and animals the way you want to be treated.
