Plymouth may ban circus animal acts

Plymouth Town Meeting is expected to consider a proposal on April 5 to prohibit circus animal acts within town limits, which would essentially keep Cole Bros. Circus from coming to Plymouth this summer.

Kati Carloni, a 33-year-old Plymouth resident who describes herself as a “concerned citizen,” not an animal rights activist, proposed the bylaw — Article 35 — seeking to ban the use of wild animals in traveling exhibitions that come to the town. It would not restrict activities such as pony rides, nor would it affect zoos or educational institutions, Carloni said.
