Mexican Gulf city of Veracruz bans bullfighting

Veracruz, Mexico, Jun 12 (EFE).- The government of the Mexican Gulf city of Veracruz has banned bullfighting and all other shows featuring animals, officials said Wednesday. Veracruz, a port city about 300 kilometers (186 miles) east of Mexico City, joined the cities of Xalapa, Fortin de las Flores, Teocelo and Boca de Rio, all located in Veracruz state, in banning bullfighting events. Officials changed the Animal Welfare Code last week to ban bullfights, dog fights and cockfights, Veracruz Mayor Carolina Gudiño Corro told the press.
