Why do circus have to use animals for entertainment?

Why is that even allowed? Last time I noticed a lion is supposed to be in the wild not circus for people laughing.

  • It's tradition. They've been around since ancient Rome, and, if you can believe it, the people who liked to watch humans kill each other in hand to hand combat weren't exactly known for their humanitarianism. For people in the more recent past, circuses were the only chance they had to see exotic animals. Today, I think most people consider them antiquated and barbaric. I wound't be surprised if circuses died out completely within the next 100 years.
