Stop Circus Suffering: Venezuela

Posted: 21 June 2012. Updated: 17 April 2015

Screening of Unnatural Acts

During demonstrations against the use of animals in circuses in Valencia City, ADI’s film ‘Unnatural Acts’ was screened and copies of our Science on Suffering report and campaign leaflets were distributed.

’Unnatural Acts’ exposes horrific abuse in South American circuses including: tigers being beaten repeatedly and having stage props hurled at them during training; elephants chained, punched, beaten; tigers and monkeys living in trucks, in deplorable conditions; disturbed, stereotypical behaviour in horses, camels, and a poor baboon called Maika pacing on a short chain.
