Michael Sheen has written to British prime minister David Cameron, urging him to fulfill his promise and ban live animal circuses in the UK.

“The British public clearly agree and have made their feelings on this issue clear,” he wrote in the letter. "There is no longer any excuse for delaying the ban. Wild animals do not voluntarily ride bicycles, stand on their heads or jump through rings of fire. To force animals to perform these meaningless and often uncomfortable or painful tricks, trainers use whips, muzzles, bullhooks and electric prods.

“The true spirit of the circus is best illustrated by thrilling performances by human entertainers – like clowns and trapeze artists – not by wild animals whose spirits have been broken and who are forced to perform under duress. As someone who comes from a family that has included circus performers, I would like to see us become a country where animals are treated with respect, not as objects of ridicule.
