YAY! Remember this guys name! Representative Jim Moran!

Thank you again Cher! This is great news! I will be back later to sign petitions! HUGS!

" Representative Jim Moran (D-Va.) may just be our new favorite person. In early March 2014, he introduced a historic bill aimed at banning cosmetics animal testing in the U.S. and now he’s back again taking another strong stance against animal exploitation by introducing the Traveling Exotic Animal Protection Act (H.R. 4525). What this fabulous bill will do is outlaw the use of exotic and wild animals in traveling circuses! Now, wouldn’t that be fantastic?!"

Everyone here in the States please write or call or email your congressman and ask them to co-sponsor this bill. Critical for them to hear from ALL of us!

Wild animals have no place in a traveling circus and hopefully with this bill the US will join the other 27 countries in the world that have banned wild animals in traveling circuses.
We need more in Congress like Rep. Jim Moran to really transform our animal welfare laws.
