I don't believe this...

But here's the report:
A dozen tigers and a pair of lions and bears each, besides a couple of monkeys which used to perform at Famous Circus more than three years ago, have bade good bye to circus and are presently counting days at a farm house garage in Dankuni, about 50 km north of the city, after a city court banned the animals’ performance in circuses in India. Victims of utter neglect and cruelty, these animals, caged in separate tiny structures at the garage for the last three years, have anything but freedom from “chains”.

I found this piece about these caged animals. Does anyone have any more information on this? I fully support the ban on their being made to perform in circuses: but what about their rehabilitation?
