SfA welcomes the Scottish Parliament’s vote to ban the use of wild animals in travelling circuses.
As previously outlined however we’re disappointed that changes to law won’t include domesticated species. The type of animal now overwhelmingly exploited in ‘performances’.
It’s of further concern that static circuses won’t be covered.
This battle is far from won.
Our respect to the MSPs who spoke out for further legislation to widen the scope of protection.
