Globally, thousands of wild animals are used in circuses and forced to perform demeaning and unnatural tricks to entertain the public.
Born Free is wholly opposed to the use of wild animals in circuses and considers the practice to be unethical. There is overwhelming evidence of compromised animal welfare in the circus environment. Our position is consistent with the increasing number of local and national jurisdictions that have banned the use of wild animals as a result of these concerns.
