Unbelievable but true: in April 2013 Dolphins from Turkey (the exact origin is unknown) to the Czech circus Cirkus Cirkus in Prague can be borrowed so that visitors can swim with them. Here, the import of dolphins in the EU primarily commercial purposes is loud EC 338/97 prohibited. PETA has already in December 2012, the circus owner, the patrons Senator Petr Bratsky written and the Mayor of Prague and just refer to this prohibition. As a representative of the city campaigning for a ban, we received so far not yet have a response from the patrons or the circus operator. The dolphins are flown to and the ideas are apparently already sold out. But not only the transport of the animals is immense stress. Also, swimming with dolphins, visitors move in a 7-minute intervals, the animals can trap bacteria and die.


What you can do
Please support our online petition and protest strongly against this project, because nowhere in the world except in dolphins, dolphins are still relegated to circus clowns. Who wants to swim with dolphins, this may like to do with free dolphins, then the Dolphins also decide whether they want this at all.

Stop: Not a circus and not swimming with dolphins in Prague!
Of 25 April to 19 May 2013 to plan the circus operator Artur Kaiser and his colleagues to bring three dolphins for a circus show from Turkey to Prague, even the commercial swimming with dolphins is on the agenda. The visitors move in 7-minute intervals. The dolphins are from transportation, the ideas and the visitors delivered massive stress and disease protection. They are like objects back and forth and exploited. This is not only a violation of the law and an abuse of the animals, but a serious threat to their health. Such an approach is in today's progressive world a step back into the Middle Ages.

Signed, of course. Dolphins are not pets.

Always a small pleasure to see the word "abschicken" again.

What unbelievably stupid people think that circuses are suitable places for any marine animal. Any wild animal at all in fact.
