The Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has the chance to bring England and Wales in line with Austria, Mexico, the Netherlands and many other countries that have outlawed animal performances.

Help Ban Cruel Wild-Animal Circuses
Filming for Liberation

Forcing wild animals such as tigers, elephants, zebras and camels to perform absurd tricks is an archaic practice that has no place in modern Britain. Animals used in circuses spend most of their lives being carted from one performance to another in "beast wagons" or barren temporary enclosures and may be beaten or punished as part of circuses' barbaric training methods. The show must not go on!

David Cameron promised to ban wild-animal circuses by January 2015 but failed to bring any legislation to Parliament.

Send a message to Michael Gove asking him to do better by banning wild-animal circuses now.
