Independent Scientific Report on Animals in Circuses and Zoos
Source: [email protected] (Mark Dobson)

The independent scientific report by Dr. Marthe Kiley-Worthington on the keeping of animals in circuses and zoos can be found online at:

It covers questions like:

* Do animals in circuses and zoos suffer psychological ill-health?
* Is handling and training cruel?
* Does transportation cause stress?

It gives suggested minimum standards that should be met, and comes out firmly against the shackling of circus elephants.

Well worth a read, and could be important to quote from when discussing these matters with local authorities.
