PLEASE SIGN! Performing elephant Carol was targeted and injured by a still-unknown assailant in a 2013 drive-by shooting. Carol thankfully made a full recovery, but rather than retire her to a safe life in an animal sanctuary, Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus made her perform on April 3, 2014. Carol should be spared from performing and allowed to live the rest of her days in peace.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law a ban on the sale of elephant ivory and rhinoceros horns. For those caught trading, the law starts with a fine of $3,000 and threatens up to 7 years imprisonment for any items worth more than $25,000. With more teeth than earlier laws, we look forward to seeing more States and their leaders follow his example.
