Do the following sentences convey the same meaning?:

Animals are kept in circuses and zoos for people's entertainment when visiting these areas.
Animals are kept in circuses and zoos for people's entertainment when they visit these areas.

Or it it isn't made clear that the subject I'm referring to is "people"?

Thank you.
