Connecticut: Help end cruel circus abuse
This action is for Connecticut residents only.
Legislation is pending to prohibit the use of wild animals in circuses in Connecticut.
Wild animals don’t belong in circuses. They are subjected to neglect, abusive training, prolonged confinement, and their use in circuses puts the public at risk. It’s not entertainment—it’s cruelty.
Wild animals have complex behavioral, physical, and emotional needs that cannot be satisfied by traveling shows designed for human entertainment. They need your voice, today.
Please urge your state legislators to support An Act Concerning The Use Of Exotic Or Wild Animals In Traveling Animal Acts (SB 413), known as the “Circus Bill.”
You can send an email and/or call your state legislators using the toggle buttons noted with the icons below. Phone calls have much more impact than emails. If you’re able to make a phone call, please do so.
