There will be a Protest/leafleting this Thursday 2nd May, from 6pm to 7:30pm, when Zippos Circus comes to Mitcham.

Zippos Circus are one of only eight circuses in the UK that continue to use animals. The other 24 UK circuses don't use animals. Zippos Circus uses Horses, Ponies, a dog 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:
