ANIMAL ISSUES LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

November 14th, 2019

UPDATES
The city of Charlotte, NC
is considering a traveling exotic animal ban.  There was a hearing on the 12th.  Several activists attended wearing circus abuse shirts and holding signs.  It is not too late to get your calls and comments in to support our side with facts, especially if you are a citizen of Charlotte.  Thank you for your time and attention to this matter!  Every city counts, as neighboring cities often follow suit with ordinances.
