Minas Gerais votes to ban animal circuses

Posted: 23 December 2013. Updated: 23 December 2013

On December 19, 2013, the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil passed Bill 4787/13 which prohibits the use of ALL animals in circuses.

Our utmost thanks to the Assembly of Minas Gerais for passing the Bill, the organisation “Movimento Mineiro”, with whom ADI Latin America has been working with on this issue and to everyone who contacted the deputies to seek their support for the Bill, which has now to be approved by the Governor before becoming law.

Take action!

  • Please ask Governor Antônio Anastasia to approve the Bill - tweet @governomg or post a facebook or web message.
