Minneapolis council to consider ban on circus wild animals

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Minneapolis City Council today considers whether to ban wild animals from circuses in town.

 

Animal-rights activists object to what they consider inhumane treatment of tigers, lions and elephants.

 

But circus organizers say their animals are not abused.

 

If the ban is approved, Minneapolis would be the second major U.S. city after Albuquerque, New Mexico, to adopt such a measure.

 

The Minneapolis Shrine Circus is scheduled to perform at Target Center next month, but the proposed ban would not take effect until after this year’s circus.
