ADI calls for wild animal circus ban in Scottish consultation
ADI has called for a ban on the use of wild animals in travelling circuses, on both ethical and welfare grounds, in its detailed response to the Scottish Government’s consultation on the use of wild animals in circuses, which closed yesterday.
Letter to Prime Minister calling for swift passage of wild animal circus ban
We, the undersigned, are concerned that since the Government announced its intention to ban the use of wild animals in circuses in March 2012 and following the publication of the Draft Wild Animals in Circuses Bill last April, little progress appears to have been made to bring this widely supported and long overdue restriction into law.
ADI and PETA criticise film for using abused circus elephant
The Hundred-Year-Old Man is a movie directed by Felix Herngren which bills itself as a comedy, however there is absolutely nothing funny about the shocking abuse of poor Vana Mana, the elephant whose use in the movie has been condemned by ADI and PETA ahead of its release in Germany on March 20th 2014.
