Ethical Treatment Of Animals: CA

Addition to Ethical Treatment Of Animals: CA

Regarding the animals in entertainment bullet point, it is time to expand this to all animal entertainment rather than how it currently reads of banning exploitation of animals in only violent sporting events.  With the recent outrage regarding Sea World and Ringling Bros, let’s stop using animals for all sorts of human amusement/entertainment.  Please note that the revision does not list all venues where animals are used for entertainment, but rather states “….including but not limited to….”

 plank from   III. Ecological Sustainability,  K.9.

“Ban the exploitation of animals in violent entertainment and sports.”

To Revise: 
“Ban the exploitation and use of animals in entertainment and sports, including but not limited to cock fighting, rodeos, horse and dog racing, pigeon shoots, circuses, zoos, and marine parks.”
