This video is so disturbing to me. I remember when I was working at the Ronald McDonald House and we'd get free tickets to the Ringling Bros. Circus, I was so excited to hand them out and the children and families were so excited to get them. And this is what the "trainers" at Ringling were doing before, during and after a show! I'm disgusted.
No personal joy is worth the agony of another living being. Although I'm not a vegetarian, I do believe in cherishing life and I do believe that every being should be treated with respect. This is why I will always respect and admire what PETA does.
