Animal Entertainment Cruelty
Animals kept in zoos are deprived not only of their natural habitats and climatic environments, they are made to suffer unnatural and cruel social deprivation; even isolation. Animals in zoos can not exercise, explore, play, forage and socialize in a way that they are meant to and they start to exhibit abnormal behavior after a time.
Like in this picture, these animals are being trained. Training for this animals include beating and whipping animals, and depriving then of food. Trainers sometimes strike elephants with sharpened hooks, which can result in physical injury. Also, by displaying bears as tricycle-riding caricatures and by dressing elephants in tuts, circuses present animals as creatures whose purpose is to amuse us, rather than creatures with an intrinsic value and their own nature and behavior.
Orcas and dolphins are known as the most intelligent, affectionate and wonderful creatures or the sea. They are being put in theme parks to perform silly tricks for a few dead fish. These beautiful animals are kept in small enclosure, away from his or her community, poked, prodded, and made to behave unnaturally each day.
Animals For Animal
CAPS (Captive Animals' Protection Society)
Founded in 1957, the Captive Animals’ Protection Society (CAPS) is one of the UK’s longest-running charities working to protect animals.
Through a combination of undercover investigations, research, campaigns, political lobbying and education, our work for animals focuses predominantly on issues affecting those individuals held captive in circuses and zoos, as well as those used in the television and film industry and the exotic pet trade.
Working for a world without cages, we encourage a more compassionate attitude and relationship between humans and other animals.
