Stop funding animal circuses

The Arts Council of Ireland has granted nearly 1 million Euro of taxpayers money to circuses. The exploitation of animals in circuses is not art - it's cruelty. If the Arts Council of Ireland wants to fund circuses, they should only give money to non-animal circuses. Learn about the suffering of animals in Irish circuses - http://www.irishcircuses.org/
