NIJAR Council intends to introduce bylaws aimed at protecting animals and controlling their use in public spectacles.
The town has a growing problem with pets that are allowed to roam the streets or are abandoned by their owners, declared Nijar’s deputy mayor Alexis Pineda. As regulations now stand, domestic animals are inadequately protected and are further jeopardised by a lack of official reaction to ill-treatment cases, he said.
At present Nijar has an Ownership of Dangerous Animals bylaw but nothing that guarantees the animals’ wellbeing or prevents their abuse in circuses, fairs and other public spectacles, Pineda said.
