Petition to request Ku-ring-gai Council reinstate their ban on circuses

We the undersigned respectfully request that Ku-ring-gai Council, on Sydney's North Shore, reinstate the ban on circuses which was introduced in 1999.  Teaching animals to perform inappropriate tricks does nothing to educate the public or foster respect for animals and the living conditions for performing animals often fail to meet basic welfare needs.  There is no justification for animal circuses in the 21st Century.

  • Bassam Imam Animals in circuses were created by GOD and granted the inalienable rights to be treated humanely and mercifully, and to not be abused, brutalized into submission, over-worked, or forced to perform unnatural or painful acts. Unfortunately, the aforementioned problems are often ongoing problems in animal circuses.
