The performance with predators taking part in is considered to be the most dangerous one. The animal tamer unlike the other performers can’t use safety belts as the balancers or equilibrists do. On the circus arena an animal tamer can account only on his own stamina and courage.
According to the rules of safety there is always a gun lying on the crimp of the arena during the performance. Of course it is charged with the blank bullets and is aimed not to shoot an animal but only to frighten it with a sudden loud sound in an emergency situation. Though the lions and tigers which have taken part in performances for a long time and are accustomed to the loud sounds are likely to pay no attention to the shot.
If you have decided to keep a ferret you should realize that ferrets need special care and treatment. So think whether you are ready to pay much attention to your very special pet. If you are ready then probably some of these tips would be really helpful.
Despite the fact ferrets do like to sleep (they sleep at least 18 hours a day) they are very active. I would even say they are energetic pets. It means that they need one’s attention. If you are busy and have no time to look after your pet then you should think if you really need a ferret. Ferrets are playful. So your ferret wouldn’t like to stay in a cage all day long. It would be terrible for it.
The issue concerning animal testing is quite disputable. There are many who protest practice of animal experimentation. The statistics is horrible indeed. It is believed that over 100 million of animals are tested annually. And it seems really terrible. At the same time it is impossible to avoid animal testing practice. It is believed that animal testing is used to save humans from diseases. Well, it is wonderful indeed. But the price is too high, don’t you think so? And one could hardly justify the practice of testing cosmetics. So called the Draize Test is used to test cosmetics. Tested animals are conscious. As the rule scientists test skin or eye reaction of cosmetics they are testing. Usually they use albino rabbits. I could hardly justify this type of testing. Fine, I’m ready to accept the practice in case there in no way to solve the problem. At the same time they test not only rats and mice as we used to think. Quite often they use cats, dogs, primates, rabbits. And to tell the truth the numbers of tested animals are shocking. Thus it is said that in 2000 scientists tested over 25 000 cats in the States.
