Our record on animal welfare still shameful

THE use of wild animals to entertain in circuses will be outlawed thanks to the recent legalisation passed in the British parliament.
For the sake of the thousands of animals used for this so-called "entertainment" throughout the world, I hope that other countries will endorse this compassionate move, and let these animals live out their lives in the wild where they belong.
Ireland, of course, lags well behind civilised countries in the field of animal welfare.
