Good. The sooner wild animals are not carted around in those beastly little cages and peered at and prodded the better.
I saw rather a marvellous circus whose animal stars were the 2 family dogs, their great fat ginger cat, and a tiny Shetland pony, they were wonderful and very obviously enjoying themselves, for the pony and the cat there was overt bribery, the dogs were just in it for praise.
It’s ages since I heard mention of a flea circus. They used to be popular events, I think, and I have actually seen one, but can’t remember where or when. It wasn’t exactly exciting, more a curiosity. Any flea-circus devotees or ring-masters out there? Do they exist in the hexagon? I imagine they might draw a small crowd at a marché aux puces.
There are very few things I don’t like about France but the attitude to animals in general is one of those things. In England circuses with animals have become unacceptable and there are only 1 or 2 that still survive. I hope this becomes the case in France and elsewhere also.
