I didn’t actually think that was something that was on the table for any nation. It seems part of the reason is that animals were kept in “inhumane” conditions (small cages, dirty water, poked with sticks, etc, etc). Hopefully this will be a trend to ban domesticated animals as well as wild animals (a number of contries have banned wild animals apparently) from being used in circuses. At the same time would it be a stretch to see this law as giving precedent for other animal rights campaigns in Bolivia?
