End Circus Cruelty... NOW!
This site is part of the campaign to stamp out animal circuses in the UK and beyond. We oppose all animal cruelty, but choose to focus on this issue. Our aim is to supply information on the cruelty involved in animal circuses as well as on individual circuses. In addition, we also hope to provide some of the resources necessary for running a successful campaign.
Please
email us details of any circus protests you have planned, or reports of ones you have had. Also, any information you have about UK circuses would be appreciated.
Focus:
The not-so-'Great' British Circus


The 'Great' British Circus is one of the last UK circuses to use 'exotic' animals. As Circus Harlequin, they featured heavily in Animal Defenders' damning report
'The Ugliest Show on Earth': incidents included a sick lioness being hidden from the RSPCA.

Their site advertises a 'lion cub experience': we do not believe this 'experience' is a great one for the cubs themselves. (click
