Your Opinion Thank you for your vote. Circus Animals Should animal acts be banned at circuses?No. There's nothing wrong with animal acts at circuses. This is a well regulated industry, and few of the animals are abused, despite what some animal rights groups may say. If animals were banned from circuses, there wouldn't be a point in going. (43%) I don't think they should be banned, but there should be more regulations and oversight to make sure the animals are treated humanely. (30.3%) Wild animals such as elephants and tigers should be banned. Acts using more domesticated animals like dogs and horses are OK. (6.8%) Of course they should be banned! This is cruel, inhumane, unnatural, and mean. Animals shouldn't suffer for our enjoyment. (19.9%)
