Stop Elephant, Camel and Pony Rides at The Big E

This petition had 6,034 supporters

Please join me in asking Gene Cassidy, President and CEO of The Big E, to please stop allowing exhibitor R. W. COMMERFORD & SONS from exploiting domestic and exotic animals at the Eastern States Exposition. The elephants, camels and ponies are harnessed, loaded with spectators and then led around in circles for hours. It is time to stop treating animals as side shows and the best way to prevent this treatment is by eliminating R. W. COMMERFORD & SONS' platform to do so. This petition is not an attempt to bully Mr. Cassidy into compliance but instead a voice to speak out for what the new generation would like to see from The Big E, which is a true family event that teaches respect and kindness to all creatures.
