There’s nothing we ? more than seeing stars using their voices to speak up for animals.
Today in Georgia, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners is voting on whether or not to ban bullhooks from being used to train circus elephants. Demi Moore has been urging board members to vote in favor of the ban. In her letter, Moore explained how elephants used in circuses are beaten bloody with the sharp instruments to force them to perform tricks that are unnatural and meaningless to the animals.
“Today, elephant sanctuaries and most zoos?including Zoo Atlanta?never use bullhooks or other weapon-like tools to punish elephants … I hope you will extend that inherent decency to elephants used in circuses. I urge you to ban bullhooks. The elephants deserve our kindness, respect, and protection.”
Fingers and toes are crossed!

Well, I love Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, CSI, Criminal Minds, Doctor Who and comic books (I mean, my profile pic IS Damian Wayne and Bat-Cow...). I'm kind of spazzy and I tend to ramble... I'm also an obsessive perfectionist...heh heh...a science/tech nerd and a vegetarian.
