ANIMALIST Party, PACMA, has asked all Spanish city councils to change their traditional, Cabalgata de Reyes or ‘Three Kings Parade’, to guarantee that animals will not be included in the display.

PACMA released a statement on Wednesday 2 describing the conditions that the animals have to endure for public entertainment purposes.

The Spanish municipalities resort to the use of elephants, camels, donkeys, geese, goats and sheep that are subject to a ‘high level of stress and noise’ coming from the intense crowd surrounding them.

The Animalist Party stated that “many of these animals come from circuses or zoos and are subjected to cruel training, based primarily on punishment” and, on the other hand, “it is impossible not panic in front of the crowd due to the shouting, the rumblings, firecrackers and music “.

Subsequently, PACMA, has asked Spain’s council to consider the suffering and stress that these animals are enduring in order to keep the Three Kings magic alive.
