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
* 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.
