Stop Circus Suffering

California circus ban passes Senate; moves through Assembly

The Circus Cruelty Prevention Act (SB313) seeks to ban wild animal circus acts across California.

The Circus Cruelty Prevention Act (SB313) introduced by State Senator Ben Hueso passed the Senate and had its first reading in the Assembly on May 20, followed by readings in the Assembly Water Parks & Wildlife Committee and the Assembly Judiciary Committee. It passed all three and was re-referred to the Assembly Appropriations Committee. It also passed the Senate 34-0.

Ask your legislators for a YES vote on SB313. Find their details here:

Across the US, ask your legislators to support the Traveling Exotic Animal and Public Safety Protection Act (TEAPSPA), a federal bill to ban traveling wild/exotic acts nationwide and to be reintroduced this Congress.

    Stop all wild animals in the Circus. There is no place for them there. It’s also very cruel to keep animals of any kind in a cage!! Just Ban it forever. Thank you

    Please ban all citcus’s and citcus acts throught our country.
    These anmals are abused and tortured ti get them to perform. They are kept in cramped cages which can cripple
    their legs, backs, necks. Imagine the pain. The mental pain if being trapped and anquish of perpetual cruelty. These animals can be rescued and rehabilitated and can live their lives out in sanctuaries which they deserve.
    Banning circus acts is the first step. Following up is necessqry or these groups will move and continue tgis ugly trade.
    Please di something about this right away. Make it an illegal business.
