Mexican Municipalities say Adios to Circus Animals

¡Sí se pudo! Mexico’s Culiacán is the latest global municipality to say no to using live animals in circuses. As reported in PETA Latino, Culiacán’s mayor insists that “‘[the] best circuses in the world do not offer animal shows.’”

Telenovela megastar, Kate del Castillo, who played Culiacán’s fictional reina in La Reina Del Sur telenovela, is helping to promote awareness. In a PETA exclusive, del Castillo explained that even though she grew up loving the circus, it broke her heart to learn about the torture that the “elephants, tigers and amazing animals” had to suffer to do the tricks.

Culiacán follows Mexico City, Querétaro and Naucalpan.

Mexico isn’t the only country willing to take a stand against using live animals in circuses. As reported in PETA Latino, Austria, Bolivia, Colombia, Greece, Paraguay and Peru have already began to ban the use of circus animals.
