AN animal loving expat has launched a campaign to ban animal circuses in Manilva and Casares after they were outlawed in Malaga city.
The mayor of Malaga, Francisco de la Torre, announced on December 14 that animal circuses would no longer be allowed in the city.
Now animal rights activist Angela Ferguson, from Middlesex, UK, believes it is time the law was wheeled out along the Costa del Sol.
She said: “The abuse and torture that these animals suffer for ‘entertainment’ is horrendous.
“You only have to see the cramped metal containers that they are shunted around in during the hottest time of the year to picture the suffering they go through.
“As more and more people become aware of how these animals suffer, the less they want to see it, especially in their own areas.”
Ferguson needs 1,000 signatures to submit her petition to the town hall. So far she has collected 300 signatures.
