NEVER support any circus that uses live animals in their performance. You cannot ‘tame’ a wild animal like this without using brute force and pain. They use whips, electric hotshots, and starvation techniques to force the lions to behave a certain way for a food reward. They are punished with isolation.
These lions saw their chance to attack their tormentor, and took it.
They got what they deserved. They honestly did. Animals ESPECIALLY WILD ANIMALS are not, I repeat ARE NOT humans play things. We are not at the top of the food chain. We are not superior.
Honestly, those humans deserved worse than what they got. I support all animals who defend themselves against their abusers.
alone he wanders, an infant in a heartless world.
Circus worker dances on the body of a dying 48 year old elephant after she collapsed while bathing in a river
A shocking video has emerged showing Madi, a 48-year-old Indian elephant, slowly drowning as the circus owner’s brother jumps around on her as she sinks under the surface.
Horrified witnesses made the 40 minute video when Madi, from Germany’s Universal Circus Renz, was taken to a river to bath during a tour of Estonia.
As Madi, clearly frail and in distress, stumbles onto her side into the water, the zoo owner’s brother Rene Renz leaps onto her back and begins clowning around for spectators.
Even when the stricken animal sinks dying under the surface of the water in Narva, Renz leaps from its back in a comic dive for more laughs.
Madi had been on an extended tour of Estonia as a special attraction at Rene Renz’s travelling show.
Now the circus owner Daniel Renz and brother Rene are under investigation for alleged animal cruelty.
Local Green MP Ursula Hammann said: ‘There needs to be an official government inquiry.’
Animal rights activists of Pro Wildlife have made a formal complaint to the region’s veterinary office.
‘It is a truly shocking scene. The animal is clearly old and frail,’ said one campaigner.
Despite having been instructed by Parliament in 2011 to get wild animals out of circuses, David Cameron has been heel-dragging and stallingon implementing a ban. Whilst the government has finally begun work on draft legislation, it’s insisting on primary legislation which could take years, prolonging the suffering of wild animals in circuses, rather than enacting an immediate ban under section 12 of the Animal Welfare Act.
Whatever suits the massively rich, right? They don’t care if anyone they consider below them is getting hurt.
