Say Goodbye To The Circus
Martin Lacey's Lincolnshire-based circus, one of just three in Britain to still use wild animals, claims to have "the largest collection of wild animals touring Britain". Animals used in the circus include tigers, lions zebras, camels, llamas, horses, ponies, goats and reindeer.
This year they postponed their opening dates in Nottingham and opened at Lincoln Showground on February 20th. Contact us for demo details, or subscribe to our newsgroup at http://lists.riseup.net/www/info/nar.

RSPCA says: "Boycott the circus"
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.
