/!\ Warning : Regarding non-domestic animals, such as lions and monkeys, being locked in a cage does not mean being mistreated in the eyes of French law. You can send us your photos and videos of a circus pass or a zoo that seems not to care about the welfare of animals, but in no way assert the mistreatment. See if the animal has wounds, if the animal is thin, if its skin is damaged or if it seems fearful, aggressive, stereotypical. Is he also able to move around in an outdoor enclosure and if not, why? You must have the same judgment for a domestic animal as a non-domestic one. However, if the non-domestic animal is owned by an individual, please notify us immediately. Recall that the Capuchins, and other monkeys, as well as the fennecs, servals and other big cats are considered as non-domestic animals. Only a holder of a certificate of proficiency can have one.
