England:   ‘Tiger’ Joanna Krupa Visits Westminster to Call for Ban on Wild-Animal Circuses.

‘Tiger’ Joanna Krupa Visits Westminster to Call for Ban on Wild-Animal Circuses

 

Supermodel and activist Joanna Krupa posed as a tiger outside Westminster today to speak out for animals exploited in circuses and to urge the government to outlaw this cruel practice in England and Wales

“I’ve always loved and respected the importance the UK places on protecting animals – which is why I was so surprised to learn that wild-animal circuses are still allowed to tour in England and Wales,” said Joanna. “No animal should be forced to perform tricks for entertainment, and it’s time the British government put an end to this cruelty.”

Wild animals in circuses spend their lives confined to cramped cages and barren trailers as they’re carted up and down the country. Trainers bully them into performing confusing tricks, often beating them into submission if they don’t obey. Denied the opportunity to do anything that is natural and important to them, they frequently suffer from chronic health problems and psychological disorders – and many die prematurely.

 

Fortunately, wild-animal circuses are part of a dying industry, and more and more countries around the world are outlawing them. David Cameron promised to introduce a ban in England and Wales when he was Prime Minister but failed to do so, even though 94 per cent of respondents to a government consultation supported one. Scotland introduced legislation banning wild-animal circuses earlier this year, so there’s no excuse for England and Wales not to do the same.

 

What You Can Do

Please contact the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Michael Gove, and ask him to bring England and Wales in line with the many countries that have outlawed animal acts in circuses.

USA: Ask Alaska Airlines To Stop Its Support Of Iditarod and Many Dog Deaths.

In just one week of the 2017 race—when temperatures hit 30 degrees below or colder for days at a time—five dogs died.

One got away from his handler and was hit by a car, another died of hyperthermia on a plane, and three others died on the trail, one likely from choking on his own vomit.

More than 150 dogs have been killed in the race’s history—not counting those who died during the year while kept on chains or who were killed because they lacked the rare speed and stamina necessary to make the cut.


Please join PETA in urging Alaska Airlines to end its sponsorship of this abusive race in which dogs are run to their deaths.

UK RESIDENTS ONLY ACTION – Strong Suggestion That UK Will Ban Live Animal Exports After Brexit (Leaving the EU). Thank Mr. Gove For A Positive Comment.

Environment Secretary, Michael Gove, has suggested that Britain may end the cruel UK live export trade after Brexit.

IF YOU ARE UK RESIDENT ONLY – Please email him today, welcoming this suggestion and urging him to act.

 

Above – Minister Gove with canine friend.

Compassion’s investigators have just arrived back from the Turkish/Bulgarian border, where they have been documenting the condition of animals in transit.

 

SAV Comment – click on this link above to read more about what the investigators found and as always, where EU law for animals in transport is being breached. 

An issue we have shown for years and campaigned strongly about.  Van Goethem and the others at the EU simply say they can do nothing, despite having regulations that they could act on with regard prosecutions.  The EU – useless as always; a big tub of useless hot air in Brussels !

What they found was shocking and appalling, but sadly not surprising.

Time and again we see evidence that animals suffer during long distance transport, but nothing is done.

Brexit gives the British government an opportunity to take a stand.

We must ensure the global trade in animals for fattening or slaughter is dismantled, a UK ban would be a historic first step.

 

You can take further action at the following link BUT ONLY IF YOU LIVE IN THE UK.
