My Circus experience would have to include imagery of animal acts through history however I would also like to include a section about Animal rights activisits and the promotion of Human only Circus acts. This could be a transition between the old and the new.
But aren't wild animals in circuses banned? In March 2012 the government in Westminster announced a phase-in ban on wild animals in circuses in England with a lisencing scheme to be impilimented in the interim. However, the RSPCA have serious concerns as the government have yet to make a firm commitment to a deadline for a ban and the documents outlining the proposals are peppered with inconsistencies and contraditctions.
Im shocked and upset by the imagery as I was under the impression that most circuses did not use animals in their shows anymore.
