(ANSA) - Imola, September 24 - The tragic end of a circus
giraffe who escaped onto the streets of a town near Bologna on
Friday then died after being tranquillized for re-capture was
discussed in Italian Parliament on Monday.
Following the animal's death, Imola city authorities
ordered the Aldo Martini Circus to close down and leave the
vicinity.
Senator Carlo Giovanardi of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's
People of Freedom (PdL) party said that the 40 people working
for the circus "are not criminals".
The 920-kilogram giraffe named Aleksandre eluded capture
for several hours, running amok and damaging cars during rush
hour on Friday.
"The stress and the excessive seditive administered
against the will of the circus workers on site is what killed
the animal," said Giovanardi.
