Hampshire MPs and council officials

There are a lot of talented circus performers in the UK; people who choose this as a career, train for years and are paid accordingly. There is absolutely NO NEED to have animals 'performing' for human entertainment - it is unnatural and fundamentally wrong. The training methods used are often barbaric and the animals' 'free time' is not spent in their natural habitat, instead they are kept in substandard cages and stalls with little or no contact with other creatures. We are supposedly a national of animal lovers and yet we continue to allow this to happen. Some councils across the UK have banned circuses containing animals from showing in their city/town/county - Hampshire should do the same!

Signed,
