No Elephant Bullhooks in Atlanta, Georgia

A bullhook is a cruel rod with a sharp metal hook and point on the end that are used to strike, jab, hook, prod, and beat elephants on the most sensitive parts of their bodies and has been abandoned by most zoos, and banned in Fulton County, Georgia.

 

Yet Atlanta, part of Fulton County, wants to remove the ban on bullhooks for Atlanta city limits by catering to companies such as Ringling Bros. that make millions off elephant abuse.

 

Tell Atlanta city council members to keep the ban on elephant bullhooks for all of Fulton County, including Atlanta. Condoning animal abuse is unexceptable.
