Your Guide to the Reality of Animal Circus

"The academic panel concluded that there appears to be little evidence to demonstrate that the welfare of animals kept in travelling circuses is any better or worse than that of animals kept in other captive environments" - Executive Summary of the DEFRA Circus Working Group 2007

CAPS: Taking the law into their own hands?

"...that cruel idiot needs a chain round his neck and hung."
CAPS Facebook page 11 September

Captive Animals Protection Society (CAPS) Director Liz Tyson is attending the 2014 Animal Rights Conference in Luxembourg where she is presenting 'Taking the law into our own hands' a presentation to the faithful on how current welfare laws could be used against circuses, zoos and other animal enterprises. Ms Tyson has a degree in Environmental Law and is now undertaking further academic study in animal welfare law.

However, it is a great a shame that she and her fellow CAPS members do not have a clear understanding of some other laws, namely the UK's Malicious Communications Act 2003 (amended by Section 43 Criminal Justice and Police Act 2001).
