Breaking! Cincinnati Bans Exotic Animals In Circuses As City Council Votes 7-1 In Favor Of The Ban

We are thrilled to announce that Cincinnati just banned exotic animals in circuses with a City Council vote of 7-1 in favor of the ban.

Cincinnati now joins New Jersey and Hawaii, along with a long list of forward-thinking cities and states who have also passed similar legislation to keep exotic animals out of circuses.

We would like to thank Councilman Chris Seelbach for introducing this important ordinance after he expressed great concern for the welfare of these animals.

As more U.S. cities and states continue to ban the cruel, archaic practice of exploiting wild animals in circuses, we thank the many legislators, animal welfare organizations and supporters of such critical efforts to help keep wild animals in the wild.
