The amount of support from passing motorists was as high as ever with loads of toots of support and several passing cars stopping for more information.
The zoo are attempting to expand and get elephants. For the welfare of the elephants it's vital that we stop them. A investigation by Defra and Bristol University looked at all the elephants in UK zoos and found welfare problems with most of them. - The report can be read here. http://www.defra.gov.uk/news/2008/081212a.htm You can object to the planning aplication on line on the North Somerset council's website here -
On Sunday the 14th two BARC members did a street stall in Western-super-Mare to raise awareness about the zoo. We had a fantastic response from people, many had heard all about the zoo and were already dead against it and a lot of those who hadn't heard of the zoo were shocked to find out about the numerous cases of animal abuse.
We are aiming to demo the zoo again this saturday - please get in touch if you want a lift or for more information.
