Ask Michael Gove to Ban Cruel Wild-Animal
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.
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.
