Sunshine Coast – It is time to Ban Animal Circuses

Sunshine Coast animal rights campaigner Jaylene Musgrave, Founder of Vegan Warriors who have lobbyed Council to support the banning of animal circuses, says she is being inundated with phone calls and emails by people throughout Australia disgusted at the recent decision by Council not to enforce the ban. One of those who has contacted Jaylene is Brisbane Solicitor Ruth Hatten “It is very unfortunate and saddening that the Sunshine Coast Council has backed away from banning exotic animals from circuses on Council land. I agree that this is ultimately a State issue, in fact a Federal issue, however at the same time, consider it is totally appropriate for the Council to rule over its own backyard. The Council has failed to do this. The Council has failed to acknowledge the plight of exotic animals in circuses on the Sunshine Coast. As a result, exotic animals will continue to suffer.”

  1. This is disgraceful. What possible reaosn can there be for this backward, inhumane, unenlightened decision. Shame on all Sunshine Coast councillors who failed to support this ban.
