And they're cracking down on zoos too.

That is kind of a surprise. I didn't go but I heard the Panda zoo (where all the tourists go apparently) in Beijing was pretty pathetic.

I think it's awesome. If China of all places can ban animal circuses, well... CATCH UP REST OF THE WORLD.

The Chinese version of circus is clearly more horrendous and cruel than anything on offer in North America - and probably pretty much anywhere else in the world, for that matter. Them doing this banning (obviously still warrants a YAY) it really just brings them in line with the rest of the world. The rest of the world has nothing to catch up to.

Really, buying animals to watch them get eaten by large cats? How is that entertainment?
