Performing animals are used in many settings, for example in television and film productions, zoos, animal encounters and circuses.
Under the Performing Animals (Regulation) Act 1925, if you exhibit, use or train a performing animal in Wales, England or Scotland, you must be registered with your Local Authority. You do not need to register if you train or exhibit animals for use by the military or police, or for agriculture or sport.
You can see the legislation on the Gov.UK website (external link).
In December 2015 the Welsh Government commissioned an independent review into the use of wild animals in circuses.
The review considered evidence from across the world of animal welfare, both physical and mental, of wild and/or non-domesticated animals as well as the environmental enrichment of such animals and their behaviours.
