D.C. Protests Against Baby-Beaters!
Ringling Bros. is visiting D.C. this week, so I headed out this morning to protest its opening day at the Verizon Center.
Why on Earth would I protest the Ringling Bros. circus? That’s simple: PETA has documented evidence that Ringling Bros. beats baby elephants. A former Ringling elephant trainer even gave us photos that showed the ropes, chains, electric prods, and bullhooks that are used to force baby elephants to perform unnatural tricks for people.
Oh, and let’s not forget that Ringling Bros. was recently fined $270,000 for violating the Animal Welfare Act.
Check out some pics from the protest:
