The Pangea team were pleased to see the article 'German circus replaces live animals with holograms' on France 24 today. It's great to read the positive feedback from members of the public in the audience within the article too:
'I had never heard of Roncalli before. And then all I found out was that there were definitely no animals. That was especially important to me.'
'Due to concerns over animal welfare, Germany's Roncalli Circus stopped using lions and elephants in its shows in 1991.
But it went further in 2018 and completely removed live animals from its programme.
"It is no longer appropriate for Roncalli to show real animals in the ring," circus boss Patrick Philadelphia, 49, told reporters.'
