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.
Senior Tories write to PM to request Government reconsiders wild animal circus ban
ADI has garnered the support of Conservative politicians who have written a joint open letter to the Prime Minister requesting that the Government reconsiders its recent decision not to implement an outright ban on the use of wild animals in circuses.
