Malaga to ban circus animals

MALAGA city will ban use of circus animals and pony attractions at fairs thanks in part to the work of a new animal protection federation.

During the first meeting of Tidus, a new pioneer federation of animal protection groups in Malaga, the mayor of Malaga Francisco de la Torre announced that the city will in January’s plenary session approve a measure to ban circuses using animals and pony attractions at fairs.

Details of the measure will be hammered out by council and federation members over the next few weeks.

Tidus, the animal protection federation recently set up and named in honour of a dog that burned to death in Valencia, has members from all over the Costa del Sol and Malaga province including Triple A Marbella and Adana Estepona.

Carmen Manzano, president of Malaga’s Protectora de Animales protection group and secretary of Tidus, explained that the federation has been formed to unite protection groups and associations to form a strong, united voice which will not be silenced until animals are given the love and respect they deserve.

The federation, the first of its kind in Andalucia and just the third in Spain, had stated prohibition of circuses which work with animals and often use cruel training methods to be one of  its goals and intends to continue to work to achieve the ban across the entire province, as well as to eliminate cruelty and unnecessary animal suffering in every shape or form.
