Zippos Circus are one of only nine circuses in the UK that continue to use animals. The other 22 UK circuses don't use animals. Zippos Circus uses Horses, Ponies, and Budgerigars in they're performances. Animal Defenders International did an undercover investigation of this circus, in 2006. Here's a link to that investigation, this link shows what they found:

Please try you're best to make at least one of these important demonstrations. These animals need us to protest for them whenever we can, in order for them to eventually be freed from their exploitation, and allowed their freedom.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
