Circus animal performances and aquarium dolphin shows will no longer be available in France.
The French Senate passed the Animal Cruelty Eradication Bill on the 18th local time with 332 votes in favour, 1 against and 10 abstentions.
If the president signs this bill, which passed both the House and Senate, it will ban wild animal performances within the next two years and restrict wildlife ownership after seven years.
Also, the dolphin show must be closed within five years, and the only remaining mink farm in France must be shut down immediately.
Abusing animals is punishable by up to five years in prison, a fine of 75,000 euros, and about 100 million won in Korean money, and the sale of dogs and kittens is also prohibited.
The French parliament has been debating for the past year a bill proposed by the ruling party LREM to strengthen animal rights.
