PETA says elephant organization abusive

I’m writing to express my opinion opposing elephant rides at the Nevada County Fair this year.

If People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has labeled this group an abusive organization, it is an abusive organization. I have been financially contributing to PETA’s investigations fund for years as they are one of most effective animal welfare groups in the country.

We are a county that has demonstrated a strong voice for animal rights, and it is not fitting for our county fair to counter that voice. I am hoping the county fair officials will rethink what I believe is a very bad decision in inviting a known animal abusing organization to perform here this year.
