Just when you thought the disgusting practice of humiliating beautiful, dignified animals for public entertainment couldn't get any worse...

Words fail me.

Circuses with animals are declining over western Europe (and are banned in some), but sadly Belarus (in eastern Europe) is a country with an appalling human rights record and almost no animal protection laws at all. It is very disturbing to see hippos being used. They are used to warmer climes and Belarus is very cold.

:( this is just sad...


'In the 21st century, with all the countless ways we have to amuse ourselves, there is absolutely no excuse for these shows to be taking place.'

Agreed! People get a clue, please! As long as people visit those shows they will not stop...
