State of Animals in Circuses in India

End Circus Suffering Dossier

Federation of Indian Animal Protection Organisations (FIAPO) in its investigation of 16 animal circuses, discovered shocking evidence of cruelty to circus animals all over the country.
The investigations brought to light the plight of circus animals- broken bones; infectious diseases; incapacitated limbs; permanent physical and mental disorders. These animals, who could barely walk, were being forced to perform tricks.
Based on these facts, the Federation demanded the Ministry of Environment Forests and Climate Change (MoEF&CC) to put an end to all animal shows in circuses.
