“My piece is about Zoos and Circuses. I love animals and I hate hearing about animals being abused. Zoos and circuses have been around for a while, and some of them with poor working conditions. Keeping animals in zoos causes psychological damage to the animals and can and affect their physical health. Animals in circuses are put under constant stress as they are abused to achieve perfect acts that strain their body; they are also put in cages that they do not enjoy.”
