PeTA held a press conference in Los Angeles on Tuesday with local activists, lawmakers, and actor Joaquin Phoenix to generate support and attention for California Senate Bill 313, which was introduced in the state legislature last week. Titled the “Circus Cruelty Prevention Act,” the legislation would ban wild and exotic animals in traveling exhibitions. The bill’s sponsor, SenatorBen Hueso(D-San Diego), issued the following statement in a PeTA press release: "Wild animals used in circuses endure cruel training, near-constant confinement, and are deprived of their natural habitat.
