Dun Laoghaire, Ban Animal Circuses!

There will soon be a motion in Dun Laoghaire – Rathdown County Council to ban the use of circuses with animals from using Council land. Councilor Nessa Childers of the Green Party is proposing the motion.
Fingal County Council, in North Dublin, has already voted to outlaw circuses performing with acts which include wild animals.
Please send an email to all the councilors urging them to vote in favour of the ban. A sample letter is available to copy and paste, but remember, it is always better to write your own.

    Dear Councilor,

    Please vote in favour of the motion to stop circuses with animals from using Dun Laoghaire – Rathdown County Council Land.

    It has come to my attention that Dun Laoghaire – Rathdown County Council will soon be discussing such a motion.

    I welcome this news as a motion like this is long overdue. Animals quite simply do not belong in circuses.

    From cruel training methods and unnatural performance tricks to inadequate transportation conditions and dire onsite facilities, animals suffer. There is no reason why this should be acceptable.

    Animals in circuses also pose a risk to public safety as has being well documented by the press.

    I trust you will help stop this form of animal abuse.

    Yours Sincerely,

    Name
