"9th January 2005

Under cover of gale force winds we attacked our first target of the year; Bardills Aquatic Centre / The Japanese Water Gardens (both are under the same management), located between Derby and Nottingham. This company was targeted for letting the notorious Great British Circus, the only circus in the UK still touring with big cats, to make use of their land each year. They were also targeted for their involvement in the exotic pet/slave trade and for previously being exposed for keeping fish in excessively cramped conditions.

Access was gained to the vehicle holding area and tyres were slashed on 5 vans and a lorry. 4 of the vehicles also had paint stripper poured over them.

We left as quickly as we had arrived, like shadows under the moon

End circus cruelty!
