Animal groups refuse to participate in ill-conceived consultation on wild animals in circuses

Posted 25 April 2012

Despite widespread support from both the public and MPs for a complete ban on the use of wild animals in circuses, the government is continuing to pursue an expensive and ill-conceived inspection and licensing regime. Such a system would not prevent animals in circuses from suffering.

Animal Aid, along with several other animal groups, have issued a public statement saying that nothing less than a complete ban on the use of wild animals in circuses can be justified.

Please write to your MP and urge them to press for a ban.
