Tigers on horseback and chained monkeys riding bicycles: Cruel Chinese circus flouts government ban
Zoos across China are still putting on cruel exotic animal performances, three months after they were banned by the government ... many zoo owners claim they were never notified about the ban.
Besides the complexity of policing the ban across a vast country, campaigners are also concerned zoos will be forced into bankruptcy and abandoned unwanted animals.
David Neale added: “In some cases, I am not sure where the animals will go.
'In some cases I would recommend euthanasia, since there are animals in a very bad way after a few years of being in these performances'
