Campaign for a ban on wild animals in circuses
Posted 17 December 2010
Using animals in circuses is widely recognised as unethical, cruel and archaic. A government consultation earlier this year found that 94.5% of people responding supported a ban on using any species of wild animal in circuses. Defra has recently said it will make a decision in the new year as to whether or not such a ban will be implemented. So, these final few days of Parliament before Christmas are crucial.
Please contact your MP and urge them to support a ban on the use of wild animals in circuses. You can ask them to sign Early Day Motion 403 backing a ban, and also to appeal directly to the Defra Ministers on this issue.
