It wasn’t the circus experience I had always dreamed of. It was great for a modern day I guess but I’ve grown up seeing creepy skulky drunk clowns and side shows and oodles of animals doing crazy tricks. On the other hand I probably would have walked out if I had seen something like that.
There was an elephant and 2 bears in the show. The dancing elephant was great but the bears made me so sad. They rode bikes and motorcycles and walked on balance beams. I kept thinking about how unnatural it was for them to wear clothes and be on leashes walking around like people. What did they have to do to them to get them to learn those tricks? How many times did they crash and get hurt learning it? They belong out in nature not on display pretending to be people.
I think about how much seeing many animals like that would have effected me and if circuses hadn’t gone all PC I’d have probably freaked out over the side show too. Anyway, I went, I ate cotton candy, and my daughter wants to join this new pc circus when she grows up. I wish the acrobats would have flown like they do in circuses in other countries. That’s really what I wanted to see.
