Stop Circus Suffering

Welsh Government set to ban wild animal circuses.

Animal Defenders International (ADI) welcomes the statement from Lesley Griffiths, Cabinet Secretary for Energy, Planning and Rural Affairs which gives the strongest indication yet that the Welsh Government will ban wild animals in circuses, hot on the heels of Scotland and Ireland.

Thousands back petition calling for Welsh animal circus ban!

ADI is urging Assembly Members to support a ban on wild animals in circuses when it comes up for debate in the Senedd, as proposed by the Petitions Committee following the presentation of a petition signed by more than 6,000 people who want a ban.
