They suffer

Cirque Estival’s circus will go ahead in Gander.

Coun. Doug Foley introduced a motion at the May 19 council meeting because of his concerns over the treatment of animals travelling with circus groups such as Cirque Estival, which is scheduled to perform at the Gander Community Centre on June 22.

“I’m not of the opinion that these animals, which certainly aren’t indigenous to Newfoundland and Labrador, are put on this Earth for humans to gawk at. They suffer, and that’s a basic fact. I have a fundamental problem with the circus, and I can’t just sit by, contract or no contract, and say that’s okay.”
