Ban on wild animals in travelling circuses: consultation responses

Responses to the Scottish Government 2014 consultation entitled 'Should the use of wild animals in travelling circuses be banned in Scotland?'


The Scottish Government conducted a public consultation concerning the use of wild animals in travelling circuses in Scotland, which ran for 12 weeks between January 2014 and April 2014. The purpose of this consultation was to identify any ethical concerns the public may associate with the use of wild animals in travelling circuses, consider how any such issues identified could be resolved and, in particular, gauge public support for, or opposition to, a possible Scottish ban on the use of these animals on ethical grounds.

The consultation analysis was published in May 2015 and the Wild Animals in Travelling Circuses (Scotland) Bill was introduced to the Scottish Parliament in May 2017.
