Travelling circuses


Leading animal protection charity OneKind has called on the Scottish Parliament to pass a strong circus bill that will end the use of wild animals in travelling circuses in Scotland.

The Wild Animals in Travelling Circuses (Scotland) Bill is currently making its way through the Scottish Parliament. The stage one debate on the Bill was expected to take place on Thursday October 5. MSPs were asked to approve the Bill in principle and then there will be opportunities to amend and strengthen it. Once the Bill is passed, it will make Scotland the first country in the UK to implement an outright ban on wild animals in circuses. The ban could be in place by Christmas.
