Apologies for the unmade bed, I didn't have the heart to disturb them

Uncork the champagne and celebrate a major victory for animals! Bolivia has enacted the world's first law that prohibits the use of animals in circuses.

A small handful of countries have banned the use of wild animals in circuses, but the Bolivian ban includes domestic animals as well, making the new law in Bolivia the dawning of a brand new day. The law took effect July 1.

The law was proposed after an undercover investigation by the nonprofit London-based group Animal Defenders International (ADI) found widespread abuse in circuses operating in Bolivia. The group's undercover investigators in Bolivia worked side-by-side with circus workers and other animal welfare groups to film disturbing mistreatment of the animals.

Rep. Ximena Flores sponsored the bill to enact the law after seeing the video footage. The law she enacted states that the use of animals in circuses "constitutes an act of cruelty." The law sets fines for infractions and allows for animals to be confiscated by authorities. Circus operators have a year to comply to the new law.

Flores said authorities are now working to prevent circus operators from killing animals they can no longer use. About 50 animals are circulating in national and international circuses at the moment in Bolivia.

ADI chief executive Jan Creamer said circus animals suffer everywhere, including in wealthy countries such as The United States. Posted at ecopaparazzi

I like Silja's picture of the deer as it is LEAPING across the face of that bank. They are so agile, and graceful. A guy at my recent retreat said one woke him in the morning one day--by licking his face. They appear in the afternoon in Griffith Park, LA and by evening disappear to who knows where, because by dusk you can here the howls of the coyote in pursuit no doubt.

i love this photo and the one of the deer too! it looks like the scenery here with the creek and the Queen Anne's Lace. i'm looking forward to picking the Ammi i planted for bouquets, one of the customers favorites. it means fantasy in the language of flowers. flowers and photos do say the prettiest things!

This is the fox that was too fast for the picture today, :-)

Yes it is a true blessing to have a huge garden! But we still like to keep these lovely creatures outside the garden, as we don't have the exact same opinion about what they should eat there, :-)

I love all animals, and am happy to have recently joined this group. We have lots of pet birds here, and my husband and I are both vegetarians.

Love the butterflies as they flit from fower to flower
Seeming not a care in the world
Bent on their everlasting search
For that sweet taste of honey.
Their beautiful wings
Flutteromg so fast
Continuing their everlasting journey.
