OMG! I’m so excited to tell you the news we just all received! Today, following pressure from PETA, concerned members of the community, and celebrities like Demi Moore, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners approved a ban on the use of bullhooks—batons with a sharp metal hook on the end that are used to hit captive elephants in order to keep them fearful and obedient.
Because elephants traveling to Fulton County, Georgia, can’t be jabbed or beaten with these ugly devices, circuses like Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and other traveling shows will have to leave them behind.
If you’re as happy about this as we are (YES!!!), please send a note of appreciation to the Board and thank it for its compassionate decision!
Say it with me: woohoo!!
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.
