The Central Zoo Authority has “fully backed” a proposal to ban the use of elephants in circuses, a fading remnant of pre-liberalisation India.

The CZA has written to the chief wildlife wardens of the states to ensure the rehabilitation of the elephants which were in their possession.

“The Central Zoo Authority fully supports proposal to stop use of elephants to perform in circuses,” member secretary of the CZA D N Singh has written to the Environment Ministry.

He was referring to a communication between senior Supreme Court lawyer Prashant Bhushan and the ministry in this regard.
