The first modern circus was opened in 1768 by Philip Astley, but some historians believe that circuses were originated from Ancient Rome. Circuses gained popularity in the 19th and 20th century, and now there are shutting down because people have found various other ways of entertainment. Circuses used many kinds of domestic and wild animals, acrobats, musicians, jugglers, and various other artists who perform stunts to entertain people. In modern times people have changed their ideas about entertainment because circuses mistreated both animals and humans. Animal trainers in circuses use bullhooks, whips, and electric shocks to train animals to perform tricks.
