Columbia moves closer to animal circus ban!

An end to the use of ALL animals in circuses in Colombia moved a step closer this week when the Colombian House of Representatives unanimously approved Bill 52/2011, enabling the proposed legislation to move on to the Senate.

This exciting breakthrough comes after five years of intense lobbying and campaigning activity by ADI following the release of our undercover investigation into South American circuses in 2007.

Our field officers uncovered a staggering level of violence and animal abuse. One particularly brutal incident involved a female chimpanzee named Karla, kept isolated and alone, who was punched in the face and whipped with a chain by her trainer.

During the attacks Karla screamed, fled and desperately tried to shield her face from the blows. Although considerably stronger than her tormentor, she had been beaten, like other circus animals, into submission.

Now removed from the circus, Karla’s future is unclear and we are trying to secure her freedom.

In the past year alone, ADI has successfully secured animal circus bans in Greece and Peru.

Please donate now to help us win victory in Colombia and stamp out circus suffering worldwide. 

Thank you.
