“Animals are not born to ride bicycles or do other stupid things for entertainment! Animals are meant to be loved, just like we are,” says rapper and hip-hop artist Hard Kaur, the latest celebrity to pose for PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals).
The Bollywood singer is highlighting the plight of animals used in circuses and urges you to boycott going to the circus if they have animals performing tricks!
“I have heard from friends at PETA India that animals in circuses are subjected to chronic confinement, physical abuse and psychological torment. Whips and other tools – including ankuses, which are heavy, sharp steel-tipped rods – are often used to inflict pain on animals and beat them into submission. Animals perform confusing, unnatural tricks – such as riding bicycles, standing on their heads or jumping through rings of fire – not because they want to, but out of fear of violent punishment,” she says in a media statement!
