Animal Circuses and the Animal Welfare Bill: vote to stop the beatings

Posted: 13 January 2006

The Animal Welfare Bill presents an opportunity to end one of the most archaic and unpopular uses of animals – in travelling circuses. Whilst the Bill will need to get to grips with ending the ill treatment of animals in other sectors of the entertainment industry through regulation – the area of travelling circuses is one where MPs can act decisively and with full public support.

65% say ban all animal circus acts.
80% say ban all wild animal circus acts.
90% against whipping and beating when training circus animals.
And, all the evidence says: “Stop circus suffering”
