Atlanta City Council, Help the Elephants

The City Council of Atlanta, Georgia will vote in just a few weeks on whether or not the abuse of elephants with bullhooks—rods with a sharp metal hook and point on the end which are used to strike, jab, hook, prod, and beat elephants—will be legal in Atlanta.

While some councilmembers support a ban, others are on the fence and are facing tremendous pressure from the mayor and companies such as Ringling Bros. that make profit from elephant abuse. But the councilmembers are subject to public pressure as well, and every person they hear from adds to that pressure.

Please tell the City Council to end elephant abuse in the city of Atlanta.

You can stop the abuse of elephants with bullhooks—rods with a sharp metal hook and point on the end which are used to strike, jab, hook, prod, and beat elephants—in Atlanta.

End elephant abuse in the city of Atlanta.

      Using bull hooks is cruelty! Elephants belong in wild with their herd; not in zoos and circuses for our amusement.

      How do you force a 4 ton animal to stand on its head, Walk on tiny tubs, perform confusing tricks that cause pain and ultimately premature death? The bullhook is Ringlings weapon of choice.. that plus an electrocution stun gun and brute force. For what? A life of misery, pain and sorrow, just to "entertain" our kids for 20 minutes. Stop funding cruelty and support animal-free circuses today!

      Ban the Bullhook, an evil device used to control animals by inflicting injury on them. The use of this device must be stopped.

      Elephants are sentient, noble creatures.
