PETA’s work to put a stop to the elephant rides offered at
California fairs by the notoriously cruel exhibitor Have Trunk Will Travel—including submitting extensive written testimony to fair board members, sending a PETA
representative to testify, and issuing an action alert—continues to bear fruit,

in the compassionate footsteps of the Santa Ana Zoo and will no longer be hosting elephant rides.

The Orange County Fair had hosted Have Trunk Will
Travel—whose trainers have been caught on video repeatedly shocking elephants
with electric prods and beating them with bullhooks (cruel instruments
resembling fireplace pokers)—for 25 years. But after more than a year of
pressure from PETA, Animal Defenders International, and others, including many wonderful PETA Files
—have I told you lately that I love you?—the OC Fair has told the animal abusers at
Have Trunk Will Travel to step

How You Can Help Elephants
Used by Have Trunk Will Travel

the members of the OC Fair Board for their compassionate decision and ask the San Diego County and Los Angeles County fairs to follow suit by banning Have Trunk Will Travel.
