Cancel the Cruel Circus - Odiham, Basingstoke
14th June 2005
Please get in touch if you are planning to spare around an hour for the animals and arrange a protest at Mill Corner, Hook Road, Odiham, Basingstoke.|
The Great British Circus is the only circus still touring the country with big cats. As well as tigers and lion cubs, they also have zebras, llamas, horses, pygmy goats, camels.
RSPCA says: "Boycott the circus"
RSPCA Circus FAQ's here.
This is one of only around 8 UK-based circuses using animals. However, that's 8 too many! We can't rely upon weak legislation to ban the use of animals in circuses. The Animal Welfare Bill (in its present form) is not proposing to ban this evil industry and will do little to protect any animal used. It's up to people like you to make a difference, by convincing others not to visit these mobile prisons and make them completely unprofitable and untenable.
