Training for the Fuentes Boys Circus

A performer runs with a dromedary during an open training for media at Fuentes Boys Circus in Mexico City June 19, 2014. Circus workers are worried in Mexico City after the capital's local government passed a law prohibiting the use of circus animals, sparking cries from circus performers that the ban will spell ruin for their business. Earlier this month, Mexico City's government overwhelmingly passed a law which imposed stiff penalties of up to $60,000 on circuses in the capital using animals such as lions, camels and horses in their shows. Circuses have one year to comply with the ruling.STRINGER/MEXICO / REUTERS
