Minister Schouten is looking for a new home for former circus...

The cabinet is looking for a home abroad for an elephant that can no longer stay with circus family Freiwalt. The animal can no longer maintain it, due to a lack of income due to the corona crisis. The family does not receive corona support from the cabinet.

For a few years now, wild animals are no longer allowed to perform in a circus. The Freiwalts decided to keep elephant Buba anyway, because the animal is part of the family. If he were taken elsewhere, the family fears he will soon die of loneliness.

That is why Minister Carola Schouten (Nature) is looking for “a nice place” abroad for Buba, she said on Friday. France is one of the options. Experts give advice in this case, according to the minister. She hopes to have arranged accommodation at the end of this year or early next year.

CDA member Martijn van Helvert wants the Freiwalt family to be eligible for corona support after all, to ensure that Buba can stay there.
