Due to the current situation, the media report daily on “needy circus companies” asking for donations, and unfortunately, supermarkets also offer the circuses a suitable stage.
“Attention! The Betolli Circus cannot hold an event due to Covid-19. We ask for donations for humans and animals
There is nothing wrong with donating food to animals because they are the ones who really suffer.
But in the end, the circus companies, who can no longer take care of their supposedly “beloved animals”, are asked: Do not breed any more animals or hand them over to responsible hands would be a start.
The fact that keeping animals costs money and demands a lot of responsibility is nothing new. Income has stagnated for years because there are no visitors.
Corona is now being pushed forward to press on the tear glands and generate donations.
The media is full of such reports.
Circus Kaiser in particular, which has been advertising for many years with the slogan “the one with the many animals”, has made the headlines at the moment.
Every year at Christmas time and during the year, Circus Kaiser begs for donations and, above all, for food and emphasizes what extreme animal rights activists are and how well they keep their animals.
Now they blame Corona for the lack of food and supplies and people donate without questioning …
If you criticize you will be attacked because it is not “the poor family’s fault” that they have no food. The animals now eat what the farmers give for them.
But there are new cars and caravans in front of the circus tent and one wonders where the animal population is going?
We have no idea why everyone is supporting this circus right now.
In reality, donations support people who enrich themselves through animals
In fact, it is like this: if you can’t afford the animals, you can’t keep them.
Now would be the time to hand over the animals, instead, they still earn from the fact that the animals cannot be looked after.
And I mean…The circus industry can’t get out of the whining: hardly a day goes by that the media doesn’t report on the “poor circus performers who live on the subsistence level”
“The coronavirus threatens to destroy the circus as we know it,” warned the European Circus Association (ECA) in March in an urgent appeal to the governments of the EU countries.
“Without government help,” it says, “the circus companies will not be able to compensate for the current losses and go on tour again.”
The Circus Association received a letter from Ursula von der Leyen, President of the EU Commission, in which the circus is described as a living part of the European cultural heritage with a centuries-old history and reference is made to EU aid funds worth billions from which these companies also helped could be.
We are of the same opinion as Ursula von der Leyen, but only for the circuses that work without animals and animal suffering
Our wish is that the performance restrictions will last a very long time and that the majority of the circus tours will continue to be canceled. Nobody needs animals in the circus, who wants to see humiliated and trained animals in the arena?
At least this year nothing is going on with bullied animals that are carted across Germany for completely unnecessary entertainment – including the Christmas performances.
Finally, after years of appearances in the ring, the animals will hopefully have a quiet Christmas party without cracking whips, dressage, and screaming spectators who support and pay for this torture.
My best regards to all, Venus
