Press Release: Legislation to clamp down on cruel animal experiences abroad

Publication Year

The United Kingdom passed a law authorizing a ban on the sale or advertising of certain types of animal tourism experiences abroad involving captive animals who are subjected to cruel training methods, used for selfies, used for rides, drugged, or declawed. The new law, which will apply in England and Northern Ireland, will enable the government to ban the advertising and sale of covered animal experiences through secondary legislation.
