Shock at 'fat cats' on parade at circus

8 posts in this topic

The chunky cats are the star attraction at the reopening of Vladivostok Circus, but pictures of the performing beasts have led to criticisms of their diet and the 'cruelty' of keeping wild creatures in a touring troupe.

The animals - in an 'Empire of Lionesses' show - are trained by celebrated handler Vitaly Smolyants, known as a big cat whisperer.

Pictures highlighting their performance in the Russian Far East brought a swift response on social media, with accusations the big cats are badly treated.

Yeah, I don't like it either.

I guess one thing you don't want in your act is a hungry lion, though.

I believe performing circus animals are banned in some countries, but not all. They should make it a worldwide ban.

I agree..
My kids want to go when the circus comes to town. 
Some may think its a bit harsh but I refuse to support circuses who keeps animals with my money.

Something that is even worse in my opinion is places like sea world

I wholeheartedly agree with you. In my opinion, using animals for entertainment should be banned altogether, including zoos (unless they are specifically dedicated to conservation and protection of the species).

Scotland has banned the use of wild animals in circuses, becoming the first of the UK’s nations to do so.

Under new legislation passed by the Scottish Parliament, travelling circuses that use wild animals will be banned from entering the country.
