BREAKING: Republic of Ireland will ban wild animals in circuses!

Dear Mark,

The Republic of Ireland have committed to banning wild animals in circuses by January 2018.

This is huge news!

Our three investigations into circuses in Ireland have uncovered animals including giraffe, hippo, rhino, elephants, tigers, camels and many more who have suffered in the life of the circus. Animals were forced to perform unnatural and degrading tricks for the sake of ‘entertainment’.

Today is a day to rejoice for the animals who will no longer be subjected to the cruelty of the circus in the Republic of Ireland. You have helped us achieve this massive victory! Your support has enabled us to investigate, lobby and campaign for an end to wild animals being exploited in circuses.
