Posted on the 28th April 2022

Animal Aid joined campaigners from a coalition of the UK’s largest animal protection organisations at the launch of two enormous balloons, shaped like an elephant and a lion, above Parliament, to send a clear message to the government that animals need action, not hot air. Representatives from both Houses were also outside Parliament to lend their support.

The action came in the wake of reports that the government is backpedalling on its pledge to “have and promote the highest standards of animal welfare” by dropping the promised Animals Abroad Bill – which would ban imports of hunting “trophies”, fur, and foie gras as well as the promotion of elephant tourist rides overseas.
