Camels are seen in a corral during a media tour organised by circus workers union, to show the animals from some circuses that have already shut, in a town called Tizayuca, near Mexico City, March 9, 2015. Mexico is searching for homes for at least 2,000 tigers, elephants, giraffes, zebras and other exotic beasts that will soon be banned from the country's circuses. Circus owners are worried about the fate of their animals, which they say are too expensive to keep once the ban kicks in, while government and zoo officials are grappling with a myriad of difficulties in relocating animals raised to perform tricks under the big top.The prohibition does not take effect until July 8, but many circuses have already shut down. The legislation stipulates that such animals should evolve in their natural habitat and aims to avoid animal cruelty that civil organizations have long lobbied against. Picture taken March 9, 2015.

Fresa, 5, stands inside the dog shelter "Santuario Milagros Caninos" on the outskirts of Mexico City
Fresa, 5, stands inside the dog shelter "Santuario Milagros Caninos" on the outskirts of Mexico City August 29, 2014. Fresa underwent reconstructive surgery after her previous owners hacked off half of her snout with a sharp object, possibly a machete, according to surgeon Jesus Paredes. After neighbours found Fresa wandering on the streets, they handed her over to a shelter where Paredes performed a three-hours intervention to enable her to breathe again through her nostrils, to remove her protruding jaw and reconstruct the lips with flaps of skin and mucous.

A group of activists defending the rights of animals demonstrate next to a free public circus performance in downtown Mexico City July 22, 2014. The circus came to town in Mexico City on Tuesday to protest a local law prohibiting the use of circus animals in big tops, sparking cries from circus performers that the ban will spell ruin for their business. In June, Mexico City's government overwhelmingly passed a law which imposed stiff penalties of up to $60,000 on circuses in the capital using animals such as lions, camels and horses in their shows. Circuses have one year to comply with the ruling. The placard reads: "Don't protect animal cruelty. Justice is: a circus without animals".
