I talked everyone in to going last week, and then came home to find out why there was a little girl of about 8 with a protest poster in front of the coliseum. I won't even post a link to what I found, but I am just so naive. I went thinking that surely this day in age the animals were well treated and loved and cared for. Indeed they seemed happy enough, but really, the tigers were grossly and unnaturally obese. The performers were my favorite part doing astounding things with their bodies and the theatrics were impressive. In all, I am so glad we went, once, but probably we won't be returning.
