T.E.A.P.A. (H.R.3359)


In case you haven’t heard of this bill yet, this is the Traveling Exotic Animal Protection Act. Currently in congress. NEEDS SUPPORT.

From Federal Circus Bill:

“With the passage of the Traveling Exotic Animal Protection Act, Congress aims to amend the Animal Welfare Act to restrict the use of exotic and wild animals in traveling circuses and traveling exhibitions”

That about sums it up.It will NOT effect zoo’s, aquariums, farms, domestic animals, etc etc… What it WILL do is fix the loopholes in the AWA that people use to continue to exploit exotic animals. The Show Must Not Go On!

I have already sent out a letter to my congressmen, along with 89 signatures we gathered during my protest of the exotic animal exploitation show at our local fair.

Click on the links and find more, get informed and support this bill.

Thanks!

“When children see animals in a circus, they learn that animals exist for our amusement. Quite apart from the cruelty involved in training and confining these animals, the whole idea that we should enjoy the humiliating spectacle of an elephant or lion made to perform circus tricks shows a lack of respect for the animals as individuals”
-Peter Singer: Aust Author/Philosopher, Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University
