“Bolivian President Evo Morales has signed the world’s first law prohibiting the use of both wild and domestic animals in traveling circuses. [...] To date, Croatia, Singapore, Austria, Israel and Costa Rica have all banned wild animals in circuses. Similar bans on animal use in traveling circuses in Costa Rica, Finland and Denmark only prohibit the use of wild animals or certain species.” (source)
Come on, USA, let’s speed it up! It’s time to ban the use of animals in circuses!
Need a reason why? Here you go:
- We All Deserve Freedom – a plea from a kidnapping victim to stop kidnapping animals
- When Animals Resist Their Expoitation: Kasatka, the Sea World Orca – about animals as entertainment… and when they rebel
- “A Slave Of The Passions”… – we can and should change for the better. Resist the temptation to use animals as food, entertainment, etc.
- Circuses - a website dedicated to exposing the cruelty of circuses
