Circuses to be banned from using performing wild animals

Another piece of good news. Defra is developing proposals to prevent wild animals from being forced to perform in travelling circuses.

Animal Welfare Minister Lord Taylor said:
“There is no place in today’s society for wild animals being used for our entertainment in travelling circuses. Wild animals deserve our respect. We have said many times we wanted to ban this outdated practice, but before we could do that there were serious legal issues we had to consider."
Hopefully it will eventually lead to an end to scenes like this.
