Sadly, the bill to ban wild animals in British circuses was blocked by Conservative MP Andrew Rosindell at its second reading on October 17th. This is the second time that Mr Rosindell has blocked the bill, sabotaging efforts to bring the suffering of circus animals finally to an end.
Inspection reports for the two circuses licensed to use wild animals in Britain – and obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by ADI – have revealed how issues repeatedly raised by inspectors are not being addressed, highlighting the urgent need for a ban.
ADI USA is calling on the University of Wisconsin at Madison to halt plans to revive, after more than 20 years, research that will see newborn monkeys torn from their mothers and subjected to a series of stress tests to study human anxiety and depression.
