Wonder if they still use animals..........

PETA's Animal Times >> Students Raise a Royal Ruckus

Students around the world joined PETA in urging Prince Rainier to end the use of animals in the Monte Carlo International Circus Festival

For years, animals have been trucked hundreds of miles over mountain passes to take part in the festival. They are forced to balance on balls, leap through burning hoops, twirl on their back legs, skate and ride bicycles.
A PETA videotape shot secretly at the 1995 festival shows a trainer jabbing and hitting an elephant with a bullhook to make her sit upright on a stool; a frightened, whimpering muzzled bear being forced to perform a complicated gymnastics routine; and a trainer pulling a panther by the tail and hitting the animal with a stick. Our investigator saw elephants swaying neurotically in the small, dirty truck used to transport them and depressed bears biting bars and rocking in their small cages. At least one of the circuses has been charged with smuggling endangered species, including chimpanzees, gorillas, tigers and Asian elephants.

This is an event she seems to truly enjoy - one she shares w/her children, so hopefully she can forget her troubles and just enjoy herself for a while.

They were obviously still using animals in 2002 when Pauline was doing all that stuff with the elephants, and Camille too come to remember it.... But maybe it changed after the death of Prince Rainier. Other things changed too, like the whole image and colors of the circus. So maybe the animal policy changed too. Let's hope so!

BTW: Stephanie looks AMAZING! Better than I ever remember seeing her!

I don't see how she does it. I'd be WAY too scared, especially when the elephant goes up on its hind legs!:rolleyes:

Great - Nice to see Stéph smiling ... (one virtual kiss :wub:)... our circus princess :lol: ... helping that the glamour of circus does not fade away. Circus has to be supported more than ever - I never will forget childhood, where I could laugh about the clowns and watch the amzing flying artist, jongleurs etc. and all the unknown animals from far far away.
Aah I should "rent" some kids and ....... but monaco is too far away.
