Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
The Oakland City Council and all other applicable jurisdictions needs to immediately and completely ban the use of all bullhooks on elephants and any other animals on which they are being wielded. The council should also ban the use of any and all like weapons of control or "training" against all other animals in the conduct of the circuses' business.
It's clear as day that the circuses are horribly cruel to all of the animals they exploit. Even the government has fined them for mistreatment of these poor animals; who belong in the wild and not chained up in concrete jails after the paying crowds return to the comfort of their homes.
To those who have no problem with bullhooks; let's use them on you or your loved ones for "training" and then see what you have to say. And before you give me the "they're just animals" crap, let me inform you that they feel pain, avoid it, and suffer from it just the same as any human being.
