Circus protest at Castle Hill


by Bev Jordan


12 Sep 11

Animal lovers joined an Animal Liberation protest outside the Lennon Bros Circus in Castle Showground on Saturday to voice their concerns over animal cruelty.
Campaign co-ordinator Emma Hurst said Hills Shire Council was one of the few councils in NSW not to implement a circus ban on council land.
Dori Kiss who was part of the protest at Castle Hill Showground said it was awareness campaign aimed at people attending the afternoon show.
“A lot of people took leaflets. I don’t think they are aware of the stress these animals go through.
“Lennon Bros has three lions, a numbers of monkeys, lamas, ponies, geese and dogs.”
A State-wide ban on circus animals is due to be debated in Parliament on Wednesday .
A petition with more than 10,000 signatures calling for an end to circuses with animals in NSW was presented to parliament by Sydney State Independent MP Clover Moore.
