New York City Council Member Rosie Mendez, has introduced a bill to prohibit the use of wild/exotic animals in circuses and other performances throughout New York City.
This Saturday, she’ll be joining the League of Humane Voters, Nellie McKay, and a slew of animal rights personages (including you, hopefully!) to protest the arrival of Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey at Madison Square Garden. But the real hook? A man in an elephant costume will be chained up and beaten with a bull hook, just like they do to real elephants. (Sounds like a good way to get ready for the Foodswings party!)
