Animal performances will continue

Although the country's urban-rural development authorities have ordered all zoos to stop animal performances from February, officials at Shanghai Wildlife Park said yesterday the ban doesn't apply to them because it is administered by the State Forestry Administration.

Thus, animal performances will continue, the officials said.

The wildlife park has designed new performances for the approaching Spring Festival. As the Chinese Year of the Rabbit is coming, rabbits will be the main characters in the performances. There will also be soccer games with elephants and magic shows with tigers, the park said.

Pan Weihua, manager of corporate planning for the wildlife park, said yesterday that animals need proper exercise to boost their health.
