The Secret Life of the American Teenager star Megan Park is no stranger to the public eye. As a member of the hot, young Hollywood elite, Megan gets to choose when and where she performs, but unfortunately animals in the entertainment industry aren’t afforded that same luxury, which is why the Canadian native is asking Ontario officials to stand up for elephants in circuses by completely banning bullhooks (sharp metal pokers).

In a letter delivered today to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, Megan calls on the Members of Provincial Parliament to support Bill 69, The Elephant Protection Act, which would ban bullhooks and similar devices—which are used to intimidate and hurt elephants—in circuses and zoos in Ontario. PETA has documented years of abuse during which elephants have been routinely struck with bullhooks on the most sensitive parts of their bodies in order to force them to perform tricks.

Thank you, One Eye Video Productions, for providing video footage of the event.

Hopefully Megan’s hometown pride will inspire compassion in city officials and convince them to ditch the “cruelest show on Earth.” Go get ’em, Megan!

    Born and bred in Britain. I've always lived with animals and loved finding out new information/ caring about them. I currently do eat meat although I am not a huge lover and I do intend on going vegetarian when I'm older. I've always wanted to support charities and I am the head fund raiser at my school. I am looking forward to supporting Peta and becoming a member of their Street Team!
