3 days until the School holidays, yeah!

So you're eagerly counting the days until freedom is upon you and you have two weeks of blissful leisure time. You may be tempted to check out amusements in your local area and come across advertising for a visiting Circus. Don't be fooled by the glitz and glamour because if the Circus uses exotic animals (such as monkeys, lions or elephants) as part of their entertainment, you can be sure these animals are not going to have a good time.

In the wild, monkeys form complex social groups, elephants wander across open ranges for tens of kilometres looking for food and big cats are highly intelligent and require regular stimulation. In a circus environment they are instead made to perform tricks, live in small spaces and go through the hardship of travelling from circus to circus.

There are many ways you can help, like going to a human circus instead such as Cirque De Soliel or having a chat to family and friends about the issue. If you would like to help the RSPCA ban the use of exotic animals in New South Wales, please click here for more information.
Captive lions are often seen pacing repetitively
 which is a severe sign of boredom.
