Circus animals - Prof. Peta Tait & Hans Kriek NZ SAFE for Animals
Balmy summer evenings and the onset of school holidays will see many people seeking out family entertainment. To some, a trip to the traveling circus could be tempting.
We talk to academic and author, Professor Peta Tait about her book ‘Wild and Dangerous Performances: Animals, Emotions, Circus’
Also, Hans Kriek, the Executive Director of SAFE for Animals, shares with us the long-running and ultimately successful campaign to end exotic animal circus acts in New Zealand.
Entertainment stops where animal suffering begins.
We also hope to cover the other circus. The political circus of the Victorian state election! A round up of how the Animal Justice Party fared across the state.
