They are abused and 2 millions of animals die each year of this.

The trainers take the wild cats teeth out, take of their claws

elephants get hooked with a sharp bull hook

because of this they develop abnormal behaviour

swaying,pacing up and down in their cramped up cages,confusion

to killing themselves.

The majority of circuses take great care of their animals. Circuses are inspected regularly by the USDA so there is no way they could hide animal abuse.<---- No they can not but are you sure that the USDA thinks that's abuse in circus life?

I went to a circus and they treat them horribly by making them do handstands. NEVER GO TO A CIRCUS JUST BELIEVE ME IT IS TRUE i am VERY upset.=[
