As from November, it will no longer be possible to use wild animals for public performances in circuses and other public shows.
The Agricultural Ministry published a new regulation giving details on the use of animals for the purposes of public performances or training.
The regulation includes a list of the animals prohibited for use during public shows, including felines, primates, elephants, hippos, rhinos, dolphins and giraffes. The ban does not include domestic dogs, cats and ferrets, but their training conditions have been modified by the regulation.
