Circus Roncalli in Germany has joined the fight against animal cruelty in a creative way by becoming the first circus in the world to use magical 3D holograms of animals in their show.

The circus has been touring Europe since 1976 and started to phase out the use of animals in performances in the nineties.

Now they have put a stop to the use of live animals completely, deciding instead to pioneer a more humane way of doing things.

The circus is bringing 3D elephants, horses and monkeys to life through projectors and lasers. Smart thinking, hey?

The projectors for the setup are strategically placed to offer crowds a spectacular 360-degree view in the 32 metre wide arena.

Spectators have absolutely loved seeing the animals in such an imaginative way, knowing no wild creatures were harmed in the making of the show.

It comes as many animal rights activists have accused circuses across the globe of senseless acts such as beating, starving and keeping their animals in unsanitary conditions. Not to mention making them perform on demand every night of the tour.

Let’s hope Circus Roncalli sets a trend for other circuses to follow.
