A SPANISH group Infocircos has made a historic arrangement with a circus owner to receive two lions for care.

The AAP Primadomus Foundation Rescue Centre in Villena, Alicante which operates Infocircos hopes that this will be the start of the complete removal of all wild animals from circuses in Spain especially as there are already 400 locations where animals are banned.

Catalonia has banned them completely and a further six autonomous provinces are passing legislation to enforce their own bans so it is because of these decisions that animal welfare organisations like AAP want to give circus owners an opportunity to find safe homes for their animals.

The Foundation has plenty of room to house these lions and is arranging for them to be examined by vets and spend a short period in quarantine before they are introduced to their new forever home.

The director of the rescue centre, Pilar Jornet, said that "this is the first circus, which in addition to giving up all wild animals, has agreed not to replace them" adding,  "the only way to solve the problem is through dialogue and the creation of agreements of this type."
