Compiègne: The conditions of detention of the tigers of the circus of Europe and the elephant pointed out
“They have an elephant! I wonder if it’s still legal…“, is surprised a local resident. As the days go by, and especially this Wednesday, June 15, when it is very hot, the conditions of detention of the tigers revolt more than one witness.
Régine Harray-Cohen and Nicole Iung, who campaigned for the Animalist Party respectively in the fifth and sixth constituencies, receive several messages and videos. They go there at the end of the afternoon and the spectacle which is offered to them revolts them. “A tiger turns in circles in its small cage under the dodger. Young people from the neighborhood told us that he only took the elephant out in the evening. We haven’t seen it, it’s true“, note the two activists. “A woman from the circus shouted at us for taking pictures. She said: you won’t see the animals anymore, we’ll hide them!»

The land “filled with grass whose ears go into the skin”
There are also horses or llamas. “This is not the ideal place because this ground is filled with grass whose ears enter the skin!says the local resident worried about the elephant.
Philippe Marini, the mayor of Compiègne, is surprised by what is happening in Royallieu: “We did not give an agreement for the installation of a circus. It’s something not to be overlooked“says the chosen one.
The Cirque d’Europe and its menagerie are often closely watched in the municipalities where they arrive. This was the case, for example, in Dormans in 2020 where the living conditions of tigers and especially the elephant had raised a lively, highly publicized controversy.
Information taken, the mayor’s office finally specifies that a veterinary check took place last week and “that everything went well”.
Circuses with animals should be permanently banned from France in 2028.
