Who likes circus animals?

Roberto Zanola

POLIS Working Papers from Institute of Public Policy and Public Choice - POLIS

Abstract: Using a sample based on 268 questionnaires submitted to people attending the Acquatico Bellucci circus, Italy, this paper analyzes the circusgoers's preferences for circus animals. Results show that higher preferences for circus animals are related to frequency of consumption. However, differently from what commonly expected, more educated and younger people seem to be less sensitive to the claims of animal welfare organizations.
