The Traveling Exotic Animal and Public Safety Protection Act (TEAPSPA) would prohibit the use of wild animals in traveling shows such as circuses. The amount of cruelty towards animals in those venues is staggering.
… some people think that circuses are educational, when in fact all they do is teach people how not to treat animals.

All of this, simply, for people’s amusement.Jorja Fox – TEAPSA Launch
