Elvira: Scare People, Not Animals

Her Highness of Halloween, Elvira, knows a thing or two about fright. And there are few things that she finds as terrifying as imprisoning marine mammals in an aquarium and forcing them to endure pounding music reverberating through their cramped tanks. But that’s just what the ghouls at the Georgia Aquarium plan to do this Halloween.

The aquarium is apparently ignoring the complaint that PETA filed after the facility hosted a recent event with loud music that was visibly distressing to the marine animals, who are very sensitive to excessive noise. Elvira penned a letter to the aquarium’s president and COO, saying:

“[T]hree separate aquarium employees said that many of the confined wild animals become aggravated and even fight when the music gets pumping—and they have no safe room to escape to. This disturbs me more than Freddy vs. Jason.”

Hopefully, the Mistress of the Dark will help the aquarium see the light.

    I never Felt right going to an aquarium. I think kids at school should not go to aquarium field trips either.
