Circus without animals

My kind of circus was in the town. A circus without animals! Latvia’s parliament, on May 11 reaffirmed its commitment to ban the use of animals in circuses. Since that there are only shows with clowns and acrobats allowed.


For the first time, my two girls (we got only two tickets it was sold out!) were in the circus. Janis brought them to the show and they were happy, so happy even I cried when they came home and try to explain what they saw and how interesting it was.

Animals need a place to stay, the sun, a home and a partner, and these needs cannot be met at the circus. Think about that…


Janis took the pictures and this one is the BEST of them… don’t ask! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. As a child, I loved the circus animal but as I grew older, it just seemed not a very nice life for them. Humans can make choices whether or not to perform; not so for the animals. The circus is better with just people. Cheers!

  2. I remember holding a lion cub at a circus when I was about 5 years old or less. 40 years later I was thrilled to take my 4 year old to Cirque du Soleil to watch an extraordinary circus with not an animal in sight.
