Urging more action to protect circus elephants from abuse, animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has sent an "enraged elephant" to trail President Obama at public campaign events, including at a campaign stop in New Hampshire on Thursday.
PETA is pressing Obama to order the U.S. Department of Agriculture to confiscate elephants used in circuses that are "trained, disciplined and punished with bullhooks (heavy weapons resembling fireplace pokers with a sharp steel hook at the end) in violation of the federal Animal Welfare Act (AWA)," the group said in a statement on Thursday.
The PETA activist, dressed in an elephant costume and carrying a sign reading "Mr. President: Tell The USDA to Confiscate Beaten Circus Elephants," has attended Obama events in cities including Miami, Denver, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Madison, Wis. and Hempstead, N.Y, the site of the presidential debate on Tuesday night. A spokesman for the Obama campaign in New Hampshire did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
