Many of us wondered at least once how wild animals are managed to be tamed to follow impressive instruction. We see at the famous circuses monkeys riding bicycles, horses dancing, lions walking on stakes but the secret behind the show is rarely relieved.
Firstly, animals’ behavior is pretty much based only on instincts. Tamers utilize their timid and afraid, self-protection or trying to escape instincts in order to make it possible for them to adopt and create methods to tame circus animals. The secret is based on whips, which circus performers use to make animals listen to their instructions and teach them to master the necessary abilities to amaze the audience. In order to have the slightest chance to tame an animal, you first have to earn their trust. It’s the best to approach them with affection and free them from wariness vigilance at the beginning of their life. Secondly, as they grow up, you’ll need to swab down their bodies with warm towels and comb their hair so that they start associating you with the sensation that makes them feel comfortable and cordial. If you are well aware of your safety, and more than sure that you can’t get hurt, enter their cages to feed them food, do some cleaning and play with them. Taming requires courage, caution and patience. Animals are all simple-minded so an action must be repeated several times before it is remembered. Therefore, the performers should not be hasty and must let the animals gradually get used to these movements.
