Circuses especially the travel ones don’t have the opportunity and desire to keep animals in spacious cages of aviaries. Tigers, lions, and cheetahs can take only a few steps in their cages. Monkeys live in trees in wildlife but in cages they can’t climb trees and communicate with each other.
Circus chiefs often don’t pay attention to whether the certain species used to live in a group or alone and put them in unsuitable conditions.
As a result, a lot of animals suffer from mental disorders, they are hiding in corners, become aggressive, shaking their heads, walking across the cage, or hitting bars on the cage.
In order to calm animals circus stuff use different medicines.','
In order to make animals perform certain actions, trainers must prove their power. They often do it using brute force. Trainers often beat animals, tie them up, use stun guns.
In order to make a bear dance trainers put it on a heated metal sheet and turn the music on. The animal suffers from pain and starts jumping thus the respondent conditioning is generated – a bear repeats this behaviour as soon as it hears the familiar sounds.
