The build up to the Olympics, set to begin here in London next month, has reached fever pitch and plans have now been unveiled for the Opening Ceremony. Amazingly, it was announced that organisers plan to use dozens of live animals in the Ceremony subjecting them to crowds of 62,000 along with the noise, lights and atmosphere that will come with the occasion. This is extremely irresponsible and can seriously compromise the welfare of the animals as well as showing the UK, a supposed nation of animal lovers, exploiting animals on a global stage.
Please sign this petition demanding that the plans for the use of wild animals are withdrawn immediately.
Also, please e-mail the press office for the Olympics politely telling them your thoughts. firstname.lastname@example.org
