Tiger shooting sparks protest action

Anti-animal cruelty activists will gather in their numbers next week Tuesday, December 29, in growing protest against the caging of wild animals at the Natal Zoological Gardens (zoo) and the Brian Boswell Circus that uses these and other animals in performances.   The march is expected to take place opposite the Zoo on Lion Park Road. The outrage and renewed focus on the zoo and circus follows the shooting of a tiger that allegedly escaped from Brian Boswell’s premises. In my opinion cicuses, zoos and so called private collections are no place for animals and especially 'big cats'. Follow the link below to read the report in the Maritzburg Sun.
