The Santa Fe New Mexican reports the council voted 8-1 in favor of the ban. It applies to traveling circuses and similar shows that use animals.

Rodeos and educational animal shows are exempt.

The planned Shrine Circus event Friday at Rodeo de Santa Fe will go on as planned because the ordinance doesn't take effect until Monday.
