Stop Circus Suffering

Connecticut considers wild animal circus ban!

Connecticut is the latest state to put forward proposals to end traveling wild animal acts. Four bills – HB5024, HB5248, HB6001, and HB6017 – have been introduced and are now before the Joint Environment Committee.

Four new Connecticut state bills to end traveling wild animal acts – HB5024HB5248HB6001, and HB6017 – have been introduced.

Cheers to the bill sponsors – Representatives Camillo (HB6001, HB6017), Elliott (HB5248), Kupchick (HB6001, HB6017), Michel (HB5248, HB6001, HB6017), Stallworth (HB5024), and Senator Duff (HB6001, HB6017).

Now before the Joint Environment Committee, these bills already enjoy the support of at least 6 cosponsors – Representatives Camillo, Kupchick, Lavielle, Lopes, Steinberg, Tercyak, as well as that of the Legislators for Animal Advocacy Caucus group.

Connecticut is clearly moving with the times and reflecting society’s changing views. However, the legislature needs to hear from constituents to finally stop circus suffering throughout the state. Will you speak for the animals?

    I’m hoping that all states adopt similar things legislation. There’s just no need to force these poor animals into a life of suffering for our ‘enjoyment.’ Frankly, I find nothing amusing about any of those wild animal tricks.
