We are calling on the public to boycott Zippos Circus that began performances on Midsummer Common, Cambridge on the 14th April 2011. While the show Zippos are bringing to Cambridge does not contain animals, Zippos still has animal acts that it parades elsewhere in the country.
Zippos is a cruel circus. It was exposed by Animal Defenders International for keeping horses in trailers for hours on end. By going to see this show, you are funding Zippos animal show too.
The RSPCA is against all circuses using animals. The RSPCA states on it’s website “We don’t believe animals should be subjected to the conditions of circus life. Regular transport, cramped and bare temporary housing, forced training and performance, loud noises and crowds of people are all typical and often unavoidable realities for the animals.”
