I WAS disappointed with the headline you used for your article regarding Peter Jolly's circus in last week's Wirral Globe.

It gives the impression that it has been very popular which is totally untrue. No one was turned away, only a fraction of the population of Wirral have attended.

The vast majority of people feel that this outdated form of “entertainment” which results in utter misery for the animals concerned belongs only in the history books.

In the civilised society of the 21st century it must not be tolerated.
