And this is why I do not go to animal shows any animal shows because you don't know what they're doing to the animal behind scenes and I don't like seeing animals being forced to do Mindless tricks like this for entertainment

So, you are telling me animal tourism is bad because abuse, but the "sustainable alternative" is animals bunching up against the fence begging for treats. To me it only looks sustainable, so long as there's enough animal abuse in this industry, for these shelters to exist. Highlighting problems is easy. Highlighting solutions is the hard part. If you'd ask me, I'd say there should be regulations as to how much "farming" someone can get out of each animal, like it is in the EU.
