State Bill Would Ban Wild Animals From Circus Acts

State Bill Would Ban Wild Animals From Circus Acts

A Los Angeles city councilman and other animal rights activists threw their support Tuesday behind a state bill that would make it illegal to use wild and exotic animals in traveling acts.

"Wild animals used in circuses endure cruel training, near-constant confinement, and are deprived of their natural habitat," Hueso said. "We cannot allow this type of abuse to occur in California. This bill will ensure that these beautiful creatures are not exploited or cruelly treated within our state."
