Animal Enslavers Move to Clontarf

Duffy’s circus arrived in Clontarf, co Dublin, on Tuesday, 30th June. Activists were present every day of the week, from 6.30pm till 8pm outside the circus.

This was the 4th site that the non human animals were forced to be hauled to in the space of 10 days. This is a common practice with circuses where animals will travel thousands of miles a year from temporary site to temporary site in the back of crammed trailers or “beast wagons”.

Activists informed the public about life for non human animals in a circus from 6.30pm till 8pm.
There was a good reaction from the passing cars and pedestrians and would carry on pretty much this way for the week.

A curious practice from a few of the parents with children was noted as they entered the circus and this practice was seen a few

times over the next few days.[…]

As they passed the posters of a lion in a cage, they put their hands over their child’s eyes so they couldn’t see the posters and held their hands there until they were inside the site.
The obvious question was what did these parents do when the lion in Duffy’s circus was forced to perform unnatural tricks at the coercion of a whip some time later in the circus ring? Or where were the censuring hands when they took their children to the
self titled “zoo” shortly after the show to see the lion and 3 tigers in a 40ft trailer with an extended area?

The message that parents or guardians are giving their children must be at the least confusing. It certainly doesn’t teach children respect for non human animals to see a lion, tigers, llamas, ponies, dogs or a snake displayed for trivial “fun” or to be seen to be dominated by circus folk.
