China AR Groups Seek Performance Ban

April 16, 2012

Animal rights groups are calling for a ban on all animal performances in China, including live shows, petting zoos and photo sessions.

However, their campaign - which also calls for a ban on dolphin shows - is said by some to have gone too far.

Animal performances and circus shows, especially in Beijing, have "seriously impaired the country's and city's image with brutality and savage behavior", Liu Huili, an animal rights supporter and researcher with Green Beagle, a Beijing-based non-governmental organization, said at a symposium on Saturday.
