Say ‘No’ to Zippos Campaign

Zippos is one of Britain’s last animal circuses and has a disgusting record. Nowadays opposing the use of all animals in circuses is a position that is widely accepted with animal welfare moderates like the RSPCA. But there are specific reasons to say ‘No’ to Zippos:

  • Zippos employed David Hibling who defended infamous abuse at Chipperfield’s circus in court. After watching footage of the thrashing and kicking of a baby chimpanzee he was asked “See anything which would constitute cruelty?” he replied unequivocally “No”. Asked if he would do the same he said “Yes”!

  • Zippos Circus don’t care about animals and their performances have been described as ‘boring’ and ‘degrading’ by audience members.
