My city has a ban on wild animals in circuses too, but they all just come to the little town right next door to us and people go and see them there. :(

I had been worried it would only cover wild caught animals, but its fairly broad.

Quote:
Under the terms of the draft wild animals in circuses bill the ban will cover any creature not normally domesticated in Great Britain.


So dogs, horses and fleas are still fair game.
