How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I have not been to a circus since I was a child...I bought these tickets with very little thought thinking it would be a fun holiday event for the family. As we arrived, I remembered the animals. I knew my 8 year old daughter was going to have a huge problem if the trainers used whips - which they did frequently. We could see from our seats that the animals are clearly mistreated and fear people. I was so ashamed to be there. I am not sure what my next steps are, but I must do or say something. You would think that we would have evolved as people and as a culture...
