Circuses are no fun for animals!

Circuses are no fun for animals

In 2012, the Westminster Government announced it would finally grant wild animals in circuses their long overdue ban.Two years later and there is a real danger that Parliamentary time will simply run out to deliver the ban and wild animals could languish in circuses for many years to come...

We’ve come this far, we can’t let the animals down now! If you live in England or Wales act now using the form on the right to make sure the Westminster Government keeps its promise…

Wild animals don't belong in circuses...

Take Action

The wild animals unfortunate enough to be part of a circus act today live lives of forced performance, prolonged confinement and unnatural social groupings.

 

The complex needs of wild animals can never be adequately met in a circus environment and regular transport, cramped and bare temporary housing, forced training and performance are all unavoidable realities for the animals.


So what are we waiting for? In March 2012 the Westminster Government announced it would ban wild animals in circuses and the Welsh Government later announced they were keen for Wales to be included in the legislation. However, two years and one meaningless circus licensing scheme later, the animals are still waiting.

 

Take action and urge your Government not to break its promise…
