Animal Legislative Update from Vanessa Gagne

This past Tuesday a previous circus animal ban which had been tabled in March was reintroduced by the mayor of Kingman, AZ. I am happy to report the matter was tabled again with the help of several folks who showed up in opposition. The previous ban was being pushed by Animal Defenders International (ADI) and the mayor has openly showed her support of both them and PeTA.

The Zerbini Family Circus is currently in Maine. They were supposed to play the town of Rockland however after complaints were made to city council over supposed cruelty to animals, the spot was cancelled. Miraculously, the mayor, selectmen, and recreation director of Thomaston, a neighboring town, caught wind of the issue and offered the circus the chance to entertain their citizens instead. If you are in that part of Maine please go see the show July 24th and 25th. It just goes to show that the circus is indeed not dead and people want to see a good show. Thank you, Thomaston!
