Maltreatment of performing animals

Other Names:
Maltreatment of circus animals
Maltreatment of rodeo animals

Cruelty to performing and circus animals includes over-discipline involving excessive beatings and withholding of food, excessive hours of training, cramped quarters (often small cages on trailers), and extermination when biologically fit but ageing. Transportation between locations subjects the animals to extreme changes in temperature and disruption of natural cycles, causing considerable stress.
