UK Bans Use of Wild Animals in Circus Acts

Victory in the campaign to ban circus animals Government concedes defeat after bribes and intimidation fail to deter rebels MPs voted to ban wild animals in circuses last night after David Cameron's attempts to bully Conservative backbenchers into voting against the measure backfired and ended in a humiliating public defeat.
