Consultation has concluded

At the Ordinary Meeting on 26 June 2018, Canterbury-Bankstown Council endorsed a new Use of Exotic Animals in Circuses Policy. This Policy proposes that Council not permit circuses or carnivals to use exotic animals for performance or display on Council land. The definition of a non-domesticated (exotic) circus animal as described by the RSPCA is a non-companion, wild species of animal that is non-native to Australia and has either been taken from its natural habitat or bred in captivity. This includes, but is not limited to, big cats, elephants, bears and primates.
