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

'Animal Apartheid'. Reindeer. What next?


 Thus, ADI can now comfortably slide into other areas of protest against 'animal use' for both leisure and sporting events having 'slaughtered' their cash-cow of wild animals in circuses in the UK.
Rouster has for many years made the point regarding the agenda of the animal-rights community and its ultimate goal to eradicate any form of interaction between animals and humans, a term that Dr Martha Kiley-Worthington called 'animal apartheid'.

In a recent post, Rouster showed the next stage in their mission is creeping from animal-circuses to zoos; then all animals in entertainment; and finally pets. While the Captive Animal Protection Society (CAPS)
continues with its campaign  to intimidate retailers and Christmas event providers into banning the display of live reindeer. 

This campaign has now been mimicked by their colleagues at Animal Defenders International (ADI); thus demonstrating either a lack of imagination or actually - and more chillingly - the underlining agenda of these organisers and their supporters.

Unfortunately, for groups like the ADI. Some of their supporters are not as supportive as witnessed in the response to their reindeer campaign on the pages of Facebook. 

In the case regarding reindeer, ADI are again parroting the mantra of poor animal welfare by misquoting comments made by the DEFRA's Farm Animal Welfare Committee (FAWC) and putting in the term of 'animals in entertainment' in its response.  

Thus, ADI can now comfortably slide into other areas of protest against 'animal use' for both leisure and sporting events having 'slaughtered' their cash-cow of wild animals in circuses in the UK.

Nonetheless, and as recently reported, some Christmas events venues have also decided not to be bullied by the animal-rights zealots.  Hopefully, some people are belatedly waking up to the real agenda of these groups.


Meanwhile, back at the Westminster ranch...


It looks like ADI's friend and mentor MP Mark Pritchard is in a spot of bother.  The UK's Daily Telegraph discloses that Pritchard used his political contacts to set up business deals with foreign officials and ministers in return for being paid hundreds of thousands of pounds.  This comes as no surprise for a man with sliding morals who is happy to attack well cared for circus animals but supports hunting - if it gets him votes.
