A proposed bill (Assembly A5407/Senate S5971) in New York State would restrict the use of exotic and wild animals in traveling circuses and shows. It would add a new section to the New York Agriculture and Markets Law to restrict any “traveling circuses or show” from allowing the “participation of an exotic or wild animal, including a non-human primate, in an animal act if during the thirty day period preceding such participation, such animal was traveling in a mobile housing facility.”
