Wild animals should not be a part of the circus

Published 09/08/08

Wild animals should not be a part of the circus, Lisa Weisberg, legal consultant for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, said. The association, along with The Fund for Animals and the Animal Protection Institute, will battle Ringling Bros. in federal court in October, citing violations of the Endangered Species Act. “They don’t want the public to know what really goes on behind the scenes,” Weisberg said, adding the plaintiffs have “incredible evidence.” The goal is to start enforcing existing laws and hopefully the trial will educate the public enough to not patronize these events.
