VICTORY: India to End Elephant Use in Circuses

Following a nine-month-long investigation of circuses across India that was conducted by a team that included representatives from PETA India and Animal Rahat and was authorized by the Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI) – a statutory body operating under the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) – and following e-mail appeals sent to the government by PETA supporters, the AWBI has confirmed in the just-released meeting minutes of its 39th general meeting held in Chennai that it has “decided to stop registration of elephants for performance under [the] Performing Animals Rules in view of huge cruelties and abuse suffered by them”.

The notes further indicate the AWBI’s support for a ban on the use of all animals in circuses and state that the board “decided to stop immediate performance of all the injured and aged animals in the circuses mentioned in [PETA India’s] report and seize them after making arrangement for rehabilitation” and that legal notices will be served to circuses “for using sick, injured and unregistered animals in their circuses as Performing Animals”. The AWBI also stated that PETA India’s findings will be forwarded to the Central Zoo Authority (CZA) for further action.

PETA is now calling on the AWBI, the CZA and the MoEF to follow the lead of Bolivia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cyprus and Greece by immediately banning the use of all animals in circuses and by permitting only performances that use willing human performers. PETA is also urging state governments and union territories across India to ban the use of animals in circuses in their localities.

You can help bring about a ban on the use of all animals in Indian circuses.
