Subject: Two Branches of Great Golden Circus performing with unregistered animals. Malegaon in Maharashtra – Borsad in Gujarat

Greetings, Kindly refer to the CZA reply with AWBI recognition & MoEF Project Elephant guidelines for care & management of captive elephants - instructions dated 8-1-2008,

whereas performance age of animals has been passed, which are replaced with new animals, additional animals never been disclosed keeping in view AWBI confirmation as advisory prohibiting elephant performance. It is humbly submitted that:

1. Rajkot Police complaint lodged against Great Golden Circus for the violations of non

cognizable offenses instead different sections of IPC & Wildlife Protection Act, 1972.

2. Great Golden Circus performing with unregistered animals at two places without

approval of CZA & AWBI, concealing facts with all concerned Authorities, whereas CZA reported that 10 Dog Common, 3 Elephant Indian, 2 Goat Common, 7 Horse & 8 Mcaw, vide its letter dated 14-9-2012, keeping in view above said animals either dead or not capable to perform due to old age because every animals have age span, deep investigation required as animals replaced with another unregistered animals, which is an offense as

breaching of trust, cheating enforcement agencies, bluffing them with wrong information’s.

3. As per MoEF Project Elephant guidelines for care & management of captive elephants -

instructions dated 8-1-2008, after every 5 years, ownership of elephants be renewed, keeping in view all legal provisions, which are not followed. Rajkot Police lodged complaint against Great Golden Circus, while stationed at Vadodara, said circus was penalized due to violations, whereas Rajkot Police, needs to reviews the offenses being cognizable, performances with all unlawful animals may be stopped & confiscated for further rehabilitation. Scouts & Guides for Animals & Birds can take the charge of all animals during court trials, whereas CZA restore their recognition, conditionally under section 38-H of Wildlife Protection Act, 1972 but as per AWBI Advisory, circus not authorized to perform with elephant.
