The zoo-like cages are so small adults are unable to stand and although they are free to leave at will, they are immediately banished from the festival area and have to leave the town if they do so.
‘This year we decided we would no longer accept beggars wandering everywhere, distressing our guests and spoiling it for everyone else,' explained one organiser before adding that no one is forcing them to beg and that they have voluntarily entered the cages.
‘Over the last few years we have had increasing numbers of beggars turning up at the festival and it was becoming very intruding for our visitors. They were being harassed and made to feel uncomfortable.
‘We had no choice but to ban them from the grounds. We found the cages a good solution for everyone. People can still give them donations if they desire too but are not harassed and followed around the festival when they are having a day out with their families.

Stop the talk about a U.S. takeover. Try to put an American in that cage you better have 5 or 6 guys and some chains, or you'd better kill us. Don't underestimate our people because our Government is full of cowards.

Instead of spending the money and time to erect the cages ,why not just give them a broom or rake and pay them to walk around cleaning up the fair. I came up with this idea in less than 30 seconds and spent $0 on research and development .???
