Dear Editor: The circus is a dangerous place for all the performers and the audience. I hope the performer who fell Sept. 10 at Circus World in Baraboo recovers.
Thankfully, when she recovers she has a choice and can decide if she would like to perform in the circus again. Unfortunately, the animals that perform at Circus World have no choice and continue to be forced to perform.
When I was at Circus World this year, the only barrier between my family and me and an elephant was a small movable ring around the performance area that a small child could easily step over. This incident shows that Circus World is a dangerous place for the performers and spectators and the live circus performance should be closed.
