Celeb animal protectionists Bob Barker and Jorja Fox champion Traveling Exotic Animal Protection Act
ADI just made history with the unveiling of the Traveling Exotic Animal Protection Act, H.R. 3359, the first-ever federal bid which aims to protect all wild and exotic animals forced to travel and perform in US circuses. Bob Barker and Jorja Fox joined Animal Defenders International (ADI) and the Performing Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) at a Nov. 2nd Capitol Hill news conference to introduce the ground breaking legislation along with lead sponsor Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA). The bill has bipartisan support, carried by Congressman Moran ranking Republican Congressman Bill Young (R-FL) and a total of 10 original sponsors.
The bill will effectively end the use of wild animals in traveling circuses in the United States, and is due to be discussed in the Agriculture Committee.
Help this bill become law!
