Circus manager Mati Munoz told AFP that the electric fence around the animals’ enclosure had been cut. He pointed the finger at activists who he said protested against the circus every year.
Police had an unusual encounter last night when a number of camels and a llama escaped from a circus and wandered onto the streets.
Eight camels and a llama were found walking the streets of Madrid in the early hours of Friday after escaping from a circus, police said. Quiros Circus, their owner, blamed “sabotage” by animal rights activists.
What people are saying?
Caroline Vartanian That’s cause they’re fed up with entertaining humans and just want to be free. Sad how some of ya’ll have no idea how poorly these animals are treated and still support these types of amusements/operations.
BeSerious No animal should be kept in prison for other’s entertainment. How did you feel when you were kept at your own home for ur own safety during lockdown, think about that. They have equal rights to be free as you do.
