Taking the kid to the circus

When I was little I loved the circus!!! My grandparents always took me and it was so much fun. Now, Stevie and I love to watch Natty experience it. She was mesmerized and loved every second of it, espcially the elephants.
The only thing was I, for the first time, felt sorry for the animals. I have never felt that before. The horses had on a harness that kept their heads down and the elephants pooped all over the floor. It just made me feel like animals shouldn't be performers. It's hard though because the cirus is amazing.
I have no doubt that the animals are treated humanely, but I have to wonder if they really enjoy doing tricks for screaming audiences.
