Rouster thought that this article – which first appeared on Facebook – was worth bringing to a wider audience. For many years the animal-rights movement have used former employees of circuses and other animal establishments to make claims about the alleged animal abuse within these institutions. In many cases, these allegations are brought about by formers employees who have some form of axe to grind with their former employers or by persons who have been paid to make such claims by the animal-rights industry. However, nothing is generally heard from the thousands of employees (or former employees) who work for organisations such as circuses, who tell a very different story about the high levels of care and commitment circus animals receive on a daily basis. Perhaps the public should take far more notice of these endorsements than the distortions and lies from groups such as PeTA.
