Endorse Henry Beston’s concept of animals

Print Article

I realize I am in the minority as I do not welcome the onset of summer. There are two aspects of this season that make me cringe: both circuses and rodeos come to town to exploit animals.

Animals, both wild and domestic, deserve more respect than that. I strongly believe that both circus acts and rodeo entertainment exploit animals to the point that they are being abused. I feel that abusing animals for fun and profit is immoral and inhumane.

We need more people to endorse Henry Beston’s concept of animals, written in 1928.
