Circus to sue Italian mayor for trying to bar animal shows
Damages for 'humiliation' sought17 September, 15:46
Mayor Mimmo Consales had gone as far as erecting large posters bearing the slogan "circuses with animals are not welcome" around Brindisi before a court overruled his actions.
"We will ask for damages for the humiliation suffered and for the slanderous attack against the Orfei circus carried out by the mayor", the circus said in a statement.
"A mayor is neither a dictator nor a despot."
