elephantTexas A&M University boasts that its core values are excellence, integrity, leadership, respect, and selfless service—but these qualities are absent as the university moves forward with plans to continue an archaic tradition of exploiting elephants and supporting an industry of cruelty and abuse. The Elephant Walk, an event designed to pay homage to exiting seniors, has traditionally hosted a live elephant. Join PETA in urging Texas A&M to wake up to the age of compassion for others!

Stop Sponsoring Circus Cruelty

Tell Goldstar you disapprove of its promotion of Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus. The circus has a long history of public deception and animal cruelty, but despite recieving information about abuse, online ticket seller Goldstar continues to promote Ringling on its website and in newsletters.

Still-nursing baby elephants at Ringling’s facility are captured rodeo-style, roped around all four legs, tethered neck-to-neck to an anchor elephant, and dragged away from their mothers so that they can learn circus tricks. They scream, cry, and struggle as they are gouged with bullhooks and shocked with electric prods. After undergoing a year of violent daily training sessions, elephants continue to endure beatings with bullhooks as well as constant confinement as they travel from city to city, forced to perform for screaming crowds night after night.

If you are currently a Goldstar member, be sure to say so. Let Goldstar know that you don’t want to be a member of a company that supports cruelty to animals.

Say no to a school in Namibia raffling off the life of a rare desert elephant to huntersA school in Namibia is raffling tickets to win an elephant trophy hunt, which will end in the slaughter of one of Namibia’s rare desert elephants.

The hunt, which is being raffled by Gobabis Gymnasium, is scheduled to take place in November 2014.

According to the Conservation Action Trust, there are only about 100 desert elephants left in Namibia, including just 18 adult males.

Namibia’s desert elephants were nearly wiped out by poachers before the international ivory ban was first established in 1989.

GOP: Don't Remove Restrictions on Ivory Imports!

For years, the GOP has proudly held up the elephant as a mascot for their party — but when it comes to protecting these gentle giants, it seems Republican lawmakers are willing to betray this majestic animal.

The Obama administration recently unveiled new rules that would completely ban the trade of elephant ivory in the US, even “antique” ivory which was previously legal to sell. The new ban is meant to crack down on unethical merchants who lie about ivory’s antique status in order to traffic poached ivory into the country.

But Republican lawmakers backed by the National Rifle Association are fighting the ban — saying that antique gun dealers selling pistols with ivory grips shouldn’t have to follow the same rules as everybody else.
