Exotic animal circus operators should take the hint.
Yet another city has announced a ban on circuses that travel with animals - and this one is in the most populous city in Central America. Guatemala City, the capital of the Republic of Guatemala, announced a ban on traveling circuses that use animals as entertainment.
Guatemala City Mayor Alvaro Arzú took to the Municipality of Guatemala's Facebook page to make the announcement on Tuesday. A translated statement reads:
We do not tolerate the mistreatment of animals. We will not allow circuses that include animals in the city of Guatemala.
