THE councillor for General Services in Petrer, Irene Navarro, has announced that the next edition of the medieval market to take place in September will not feature activities with live animals as the town intends to prohibit displays that involve horses, donkeys, falcons or any other birds or reptiles.The decision has been taken by the government team to help protect animals from abuse as part of a general campaign for social awareness of animals’ rights. Navarro confirmed that from now on any project that includes the use of animals will therefore not be authorised by the town council in a bid to take greater care of animals of all species.The Medieval Market is scheduled to take place between Friday September 18 and Sunday September 20 this year. In the past reptile displays and donkey rides have been a major attraction in the market and popular with children.
