This year’s Querétaro International Fair will not hold any animal shows thanks to the new state law banning the use of animals in performances.
It will be the first time people won’t be able to attend bullfighting events, dolphin, bear and eagle shows and animal circuses at the Mexican fair next month.
One of the organizers said they are trying to avoid complaints and demos from animal welfare groups and want to comply with the new law.
Cock fights will still be carried out in the arena, as long as all the requirements have been met in time and form, said Miguel Osores Irastorza, president of the Regional Livestock Union.
The fair, one of the biggest in the country, also features rides, cattle expos and american-style rodeos.
