Adult film star Joanna Angel has taken time out of producing, writing, acting, and directing to conduct a PETA interview about the injustice of forcing animals to do tricks in circuses. In the interview, Joanna points out that chained elephants, whipped tigers, and stressed-out horses don't perform because they want to—they do it because they know that they'll be beaten if they don't.
Joanna believes that only willing participants should be involved in the entertainment industry. This angel for animals also talks about the importance of adopting from animal shelters, the wonderful selection of vegetarian foods available, and "a lot of little things you could be doing" to help animals.
