Tweet if you love elephants! That’s what stars like Alyssa Milano, Kristen Bell, and Sarah Silverman are doing!
These three animal-loving celebs turned to Twitter and urged their fans to support the Los Angeles Bullhook Ban. Read their tweets below!
Hey LA- Elephants are pure goodness & they’re being hurt. Help w a vote: http://tinyurl.com/l534d9d
A bullhook is a sharp, metal rod, similar to a fireplace poker, that trainers callously use to prod, poke, and strike elephants to force them to perform tricks.
How can we allow these iconic animals to endure such torturous and painful abuse simply for our entertainment?
As kids we ignorantly went to the circus unaware of how cruelly the animals were being treated, but now that the curtain has been raised we no longer have an excuse.
Join Alyssa, Kristen, Sarah and many more compassionate celebrities in supporting The Humane Society of the United States’ call to action!
Also, if you you’re in the area make sure to come by Wednesday for the 10 a.m. meeting and show your support in person. It’s at Los Angeles City Hall and humane advocates are being asked to wear yellow shirts and arrive at 9:30.
If the ban is approved LA will be the largest city in the nation to outlaw bullhooks — an achievement that other cities will hopefully aspire to.
