In order to prevent more animal exploitation, Denmark’s government has bought the last 4 circus elephants. They will ensure that the elephants live the remainder of their lives in peace and relax properly.
It was reported that the Government of Denmark paid around 11 million kroner, equivalent to $1.6 million, anticipating a law that would ban the circuses from using wild animals.
While the government yet doesn’t have a plan on what to do with Lara, Djunga, Jenny, and Ramboline, Animal Protection Denmark will take care of them until then. This law was passed after the UK decided to ban wild animals in circuses and Germany decided to use holographic images of animals to substantiate for the real thing.
The law in the UK was passed in May 2019 while Germany used the holograms in June.
Even the US of A has decided to ban this extremely archaic and inhumane practice, with New Jersey and Hawaii already passing legislation for the same. This is a good upgrade from the previous legislation, passed by 145 localities which passed certain restrictions on the use of animals. The present law aims at banning every wild animal, including but not restricted to lions, tigers, elephants, monkeys, etc.
