Zippos Circus = Animal Cruelty



 

Say ‘No’ to Zippos Campaign

Say No to Zippos Circus performing now in UK. Zippos use animals in there show and have a terrible record.

Animal welfare moderates The RSPCA are very clear in opposing all animal use in circuses but there is also specific reasons for rejecting Zippos

Zippos is one of Britain’s last animal circuses and has a disgusting record. Nowadays opposing the use of all animals in circuses is a position that is widely accepted with animal welfare moderates like the RSPCA. But there are specific reasons to say ‘No’ to Zippos:

Zippos employed David Hibling who defended infamous abuse at Chipperfield’s circus in court. After watching footage of the thrashing and kicking of a baby chimpanzee he was asked “See anything which would constitute cruelty?” he replied unequivocally “No”. Asked if he would do the same he said “Yes”!

Zippos Circus have been exposed by Animal Defenders International, for keeping their horses in trailers without exercise for hours on end.

'The way that young girl brandished the whip was obviously scary to the horses' 'When the man raised his hand the budgies flinched. Every time!' - Audience Member, 2009 Performance

Zippos Circus doesn't care about animals and their performances have been described as ‘boring’ and ‘degrading’ by audience members.
