I think this is tasteless and shows no respect for the kids. They don't have any concern for the kind of memory this leaves for the innocent young people?
Uhh, what? That's REALITY for you. You know what kids hate? Being lied to. I haven't seen the videos PETA was showing, but if they were genuine and indeed showed circus employees abusing their animals, then that circus shouldn't be going on. If what they are doing is disturbing, then why are you protesting when people are disturbed by it? I don't think you thought this through.
I still think zoos and circuses should be shut down though. There's no reason to keep these wild animals caged up when every person in this country can go to a library and find out everything there is to know about them for free. As usual, PETA thinks the only way to win support for a cause is through shock and awe. They should have left the traumatizing videos and pictures at home, and quietly handed out pamphlets to the parents.

PETA is like many organizations that started out with a noble purpose (e.g. Greenpeace). But then once a select group of unintelligent people in these organizations didn't get their way, they turn to violence and subterfuge.
These are the true terrorist organizations in today's world.
