Undercover footage showed the poor conditions and some of the abuse. The animals are all being taken to a sanctuary in America. That's good news. ADI is now appealing for funds and also for a similar ban to come into force in the UK.

Wish I had the funds to help this worthy cause... and I am asking anyone who can do so to please help these animals.

Noted! Hopefully all of the other countries will follow Bolivia's example and make animals at the circus a thing of the past!! Thanks Cher!

My fervent hope is that now that Bolivia and China have both banned animals in circuses that organizations like Animal Defenders International can find them safe housing in sanctuaries. Everyone that has campaigned for bans in circuses can do their part to donate for their new lives of freedom.

This is a very worthy cause. Born Free does work in this field too. Lets all do what we can to help

It's good news, but somehow I just think it's from one cage to the next?
Lets hope this move will be very different.......

Noted. Hopefully the rest of the world will follow suit and stop displaying animals in circuses altogether.
