Modification of the Municipal Ordinance of Barcelona

2014.03.03

The new municipal ordinance in Barcelona intends to increase animal welfare in different spheres in city spaces. For example, leaving an animal alone in a house for more than three days is now prohibited and animals must now be led on a leash in public thoroughfares.

It also establishes that anyone who wants to acquire an animal must sign a declaration of responsibility. For the first time, pets are now allowed to enter the metro. However, it is now prohibited to provide food for domestic or wild animals in public spaces, especially for boars.

The new ordinance maintains the prohibition on bull fights and it also prohibits the simulation of the same. The fines for these and other similar behaviors should be noted as the ordinance establishes fines between 750 and 3000 Euros.
