Elephants at fair shows poor judgment

I am appalled at the lack of judgment the county fair is showing by contracting with a company that has allegedly abused their animals.

Not only is this disgusting due to the possible abuse of animals that have no voice in their treatment, it is also potentially dangerous for the fair attendees, as abused animals are unpredictable and can cause serious injury or death.

I have emailed my objection to the Nevada County Fair CEO Sandy Woods and urge those who agree with me to do the same.
