Birds of prey shows banned in Antwerp, Belgium

This video is called National Geographic Wild Birds of Prey (Raptors, Hawks, Falcons) Documentary.

On 19 May 2017, Dutch Vroege Vogels radio reported that Antwerp city in Belgium has banned shows with birds of prey and owls.

BirdLife in Flanders had campaigned for years against these shows. They agree with the ban, and say it should be extended to banning having owls or birds in prey in captivity. Having these birds in captivity is already illegal in some European countries, like Estonia, Sweden and Cyprus. Trade in owls and birds of prey is often connected to crime like stealing eggs or nestlings.
