The mayor of a city in southern Russia has banned circuses that use wild animals in their acts.

The government newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta added that Magas council plans a "major campaign to teach children and young people how to treat animals humanely".

He earlier blocked plans to build a dolphinarium in Magas, on the grounds that these "remarkable and loveable creatures should roam free and happy in their natural environment," he wrote on Instagram.

Instead he proposed a shelter for homeless animals with a playground attached, so children could see the animals being cared for.

Mr Tsechoyev is up to date with much international thinking on wild animals in circuses, as they have been banned in many European countries.
