A YOUTH GROUP will hold a protest on Saturday at the Spire in Dublin to protest against the use of animals in circuses.

The group, Not For Your Entertainment, says Ireland should not allow circuses to profit from animal cruelty. There has already been a ban on circuses featuring animal acts on council land, but they can still set up on private land.

So, we want to know: Should Ireland ban the use of animals in circuses?


Poll Results:

Yes (14925)
