Irish are shameful in care of our animals

I am writing to endorse the sentiments expressed in the letter by E Moloney (June 28).

The successful ban in the UK of the use of wild animals in circuses is surely an act of compassion that should be applauded by anyone who has witnessed first hand the cruelty and abuse inflicted on these defenceless creatures.

When one considers the abysmal existence and suffering of millions of animals throughout our planet we surely do not deserve to be called the most evolved of the species.

We Irish in particular are shameful in our care and regard for our animals.
