Animals Are Not Ours to Use for Entertainment

There’s nothing funny about animal abuse and nothing “entertaining” about seeing animals imprisoned for life, forced to perform in ways that are unnatural to them and that may result in injuries or even death. Yet shockingly, there are still industries that profit from cruelty towards animals in the name of entertainment.

There’s no justification for turning the suffering of animals into a spectacle. Atrocities such as fox-hunting and bear-baiting are already outlawed – now it’s time to make our society truly compassionate by banning all cruel pastimes and sports that harm animals.
