Finally, a long overdue law for animals. My only concern is that once a law is initiated, it's only as good as the enforcement of that law. Judging by past performance in most all areas I'm afraid I remain skeptical/

Thank you for sharing. I hope ALL countries ban animals in the circus. What really bothers me when you tell people what goes on behind the 'big top' they don't believe it. Then we want to prove it, but they don't want to see it. How ignorant is that?.

When will common sense rebirth nationwide?

Perhaps if "training" methods, travel practices, off-hour confinement and abusive treatment were presented in movie form -- simple, clear visual evidence correctly and honestly presented AND parents or a school trip took kids to see for themselves what goes into the few minutes of public circus "entertainment" this heartless (artform) could be rejected ... no market, no money, no need.
