Circus Mondao pledges to return to Merseyside, despite animal rights protests

A CIRCUS pledged to return to Merseyside despite facing a demonstration about their use of animals ahead of the final performance in their series of shows.
The Circus Mondao had been performing in Prescot since Wednesday last week but attracted the anger of local animal rights activists.
Around 25 protesters picketed outside the circus yesterday afternoon urging people not to visit the circus.
But Circus Mondao ringmistress Petra Jackson insisted their animals are well kept and content.
Their show includes performances involving two camels, zebras, lamas and numerous horses and ponies.
But Ms Jackson said: “This is the second time we have visited Prescot. People loved the show, and especially that they could come back stage afterwards and meet the animals. People seemed to enjoy that so much.
“We are a family show. The Circus Mondao has been performing for about six years, but we are all circus born and bred.”
