Call to boycott animal circus
A CHARITY is calling on families to boycott a circus featuring animals.
Captive Animals' Protection Society (CAPS) is urging residents in Congleton not to attend Peter Jolly's Circus when it arrives in Congleton tomorrow.
The organisation says it is not fair to use horses, llamas, dogs and other animals for entertainment purposes.
Liz Tyson, director of CAPS said: "Visitor numbers to circuses with wild animals have halved in the last five years and there is a huge amount of support for the new proposals for a ban.
BlueSky CVs are offering 20% discount to all Thisisstaffordshire/Sentinel readers until the end of May.

"But the Government needs to act quickly and we ask that people stay away from those shows that continue to use animals. We hope that we will soon see a ban on this practise but we remain concerned for all animals in circuses, whether domestic or wild."
The circus will be at Congleton from tomorrow until Sunday.
