Examiner.com Publishes Latest Animal Welfare Article by Ira Fischer
Ira Fischer is proud to announce that Christmas Is No Holiday for Circus Animals has been published by Examiner.com
The article opens by noting that for many cities and towns across our country the circus is a tradition of the holiday season. The writer points out, however, that revelations about behind the scenes practices of the circus raises serious questions about an event that many Americans regard as a holiday tradition.
The article discusses the plight of wild animals - - such as tigers and elephants - - that are forced to perform “tricks” contrary to their nature and spotlights training methods that inflict great pain, suffering, injury and sometimes death. The writer raises the question: “Does the use of wild animals as performers in circuses send a wrong message to children that cruelty to animals is acceptable?”
The piece notes that a trend has emerged to ban or place restrictions on circuses that use wild animals for entertainment. It also underscores that another trend is the growing number of animal-free circuses - such as Cirque du Soleil.
The writer argues that, in the spirit of the holidays, people of good will should not patronize of an event that is linked with inhumane treatment of animals. The article concludes that: “The time is long past due to close the sad chapter for these magnificent creatures ... That would make for a most fitting holiday tribute for all to celebrate!”
