Seems there is a lot of design around on this website depicting animals having FUN doing tricks for the circus….. as many informed people in this day and age know – this is far from what really happens. Many of these animals are abused, in terrible pain and live lonely lives sometimes travelling for hours without rest, water or food with their legs shackeled so they cannot move. I hope designers move away from these archaic ‘myths’ about circus life and teach the younger generation that this is not acceptable anymore!!
