 (Animals must be healthy and posses no threats for human health )

Circuses travel around and can carry with them many diseases- trough their route they leave ugly scenes of urine puddles and feces piles which then spread in grass-anyone can pick it up--

Veterinarian approvals regarding animal's proper living conditions/ that they have proper shelter, food and fresh water source;

Animals must have overall good psychophysical state-- etc.).

- City permits (city codes and rules can be slightly different from city to city)
Permit for putting out the tents and use the communal areas and communal green areas must be given from different communal services (legal permits can't be issued for communal areas renting under 5 years;

all sanitary conditions must be meet before Circus can get permit to use communal area for wild and domesticated animals, sanitary and water conditions must be meet

Urine gushes trough small pipe (animal container)

all forms of animal "liquid waste" CAN NOT be mixed with human waste disposals /circus must be attached to the local sanitary plumbing system- separately- water and waste-in-out system.

 feces and urine puddles

All garbage must be divided (animal and human "hard waste" can not be dumped together, Circus can not use local dump boxes nor garbage cans for large and hard waste- for that purpose Circus have to rent special hard waste container from city--etc. )

 Animal abuse.

Many criminal laws of states posses' parts which cover animal abuse- ( there are codes like, 269 of criminal law of Serbia- which protects animals and prevent abuse in form of penalty which goes up to 3 years of prison for animal kill or abuse ).

(For example: CIRCUS Corrona/Moscow/ touring trough Serbia HAD NOT MEET ANY OF THOSE REQUIREMENTS. )

There is a huge chance that Circus that is not about to stop irritating You- DID NOT meet any of these requirements either- check it out in your local communal services and check those Criminal laws and City codes again- maybe you missed something--when several loosen ends get tied together- there could be a big ban(G) for Circus.

Wish you good "hunting"

 ~4 the Animals, 4 the Value Of the Beating Heart!~,

***There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.

(Wiesel, Elie-writer, Nobel laureate)

~"NOW, what I want is, Facts. Teach these boys and girls nothing but Facts. Facts alone are wanted in life. Plant nothing else, and root out everything else. You can only form the minds of reasoning animals upon Facts: nothing else will ever be of any service to them. This is the principle on which I bring up my own children, and this is the principle on which I bring up these children. Stick to Facts, sir!"
