Bristol Animal Rights Collective supporters have been shocked to learn that WOMAD are to hold a music event at Bristol Zoo later this month. Bristol Zoo, which claims to be committed to animal welfare, is showing a complete disregard for the wild animals in their care by holding music events on the site. Captive animals are known to suffer high levels of stress when subjected to loud music and, unlike their counterparts in the wild, they will have no escape from the barrage of noise, people under the influence of alcohol and other unfamiliar sights, sounds and smells that are all part of a music festival.
We urge people to complain to Bristol Zoo and to WOMAD:
