Copy of History of Circus Horses
Transcript of Copy of History of Circus Horses
When not performing, circus horses live in a cage or are being transported.
It is difficult to regulate animal welfare in the circus.
Many horses perform out of fear.
Horses are kept in an unnatural environment; they are not able to be gregarious.
Due to negative publicity, circuses have been struggling to make a profit. Enforce stricter animal cruelty laws in the circus environment.
This will uphold guidelines for what is acceptable and not acceptable.
This will uphold the circus owner's right to earn a profit and the horse's right to safety.
This will also regard the human's obligation to do no harm towards the horse. Solutions:
Legally ban circuses that use animals.
This will up hold the horse's right to safety and violate the circus owner's right to earn a profit.
Also, the human's obligation to do no harm to the horse will be upheld. Horses have been a part of
circuses for hundreds of
years, and will part of circus
performances for many years
to come. http://www.britannica.com/blogs/2007/11/circus-animals-abused-and-dangerous/

This will also allow to the humans obligation to do no harm to the horse go to waste because the horse will have his safety jeopardized. The Decision:
Enforce the animal welfare laws.
This is the best decision all things considered because it creates criteria for the circus to meet.
This allows for circus' who are not abiding by the criteria to have their business shut down. The circus' who follow the guidelines will continue to earn their profit.
The horses will have an environment that is safe and will be carried out via legislature, federally and on the state level.
The weakness to this is that there will always be deviance and those who try to find a way to disobey the guidelines. This will be reprimanded by those evaluating the circus environment and shutting the circuses down as they see necessary. There are many occasions when the animal is beaten, starved, and whipped.
