This Germany circus has replaced animals with holograms to stop animal suffering
In most circuses, animals are forced to perform. They are bred in captivity, exploited and punished for minor mistakes. They are forced to spend their lives in close human contact in a stressful environment.
To put an end to this animal suffering, Circus Roncalli in Germany decided to use realistic holograms instead of animals. Thousands of visitors are now enjoying a modern, entertaining twist on the circus experience.
“Thankfully the public is voting with their feet, and increasingly visiting shows where the performers get to choose instead of being forced to perform,” Jan Creamer, president of Animal Defenders International, told The Dodo. “This is the future of circus — a performance everyone can enjoy and for which intelligent, sentient beings are not used and depicted as objects of entertainment.”
