Another accident with circus animals
Circus elephants truck accident shows that the use of wild animals in circuses is not only a major problem for animal welfare but also for the safety of EU citizens
As expressed in a press release by InfoCircos (a coalition formed by, among others, the organisations AAP Primadomus, ANDA and FAADA), transporting elephants in a circus truck “is something that is contrary to any basic measure of animal protection and public safety”. Most of the Spanish public is against the use of wild animals in circuses. In fact, in the last three years four autonomous regions (Catalonia, Balearic Islands, Galicia and Murcia ) have banned circuses with animals and more than 470 municipalities have done the same at municipal level.
