Please help us oppose CT HB 5293, An Act Prohibiting The Use Of Wild Or Exotic Animals In Traveling Animal Acts. This bill would negatively impact Mr. Commerford, who brings his animals to the Big E every year. This bill has unexpectedly moved forward; originally it was going to be tabled. The animal group in the Connecticut Senate is doing its best to move it forward. The only exemptions are for AZA or GFAS facilities - GFAS facilities do not ever perform offsite programs as per their definition of sanctuary. If passed it would take effect July 1st of this year.
Please send opposition or call and oppose to the House leaders
