The Moscow City Duma has adopted the second reading of the Law on Animals. The story of this document is complicated. The bill has long been upgraded and underwent 80 amendments. The author of the law, Andrei Shirokov, said that as a result of everything mentioned above, the document had "shrunk two-fold." Now, it is "very general in character," it misses the section on fines. The fines for inappropriate handling and transportation of animals, as well as for brutal treatment, will be introduced in accordance with the effective Code of Administrative Violations. During the debates over the document, it turned out that Moscow is doomed to have bullfighting banned forever. Such visual entertainment involving animals is prohibited by the "Law on Animals." In Mr. Shirokov's opinion, "those who enjoy visual entertainment" can travel as tourists to countries where it is not banned, and satisfy their interest in this way.
