Breeding Ban on certain cat specious in Brussels

The Brussels government banned certain cat breeds from the city. 

Some hybrid cat breeds are now banned due to risks associated with their behaviour and health. Scottish Fold is on the list of forbidden cat breeds, following the advice from the Animal Welfare Council, because of their folded ears which cause them severe pain.

Other hybrid species like the Bengal or the Savannah are not allowed to be bred or sold in Brussels, because they are not adapted to a life in captivity.
