Another victory has been won in our “No Fun for Elephants” campaign!

The Bristol Renaissance Faire in Kenosha, Wisconsin has decided not to bring elephant rides back to this year’s fair.

ADI contacted the fair and provided organizers with a copy of our “No Fun For Elephants” DVD showing ADI’s undercover footage of owners and trainers at Have Trunk Will Travel and Trunks & Humps viciously “hooking” elephants with bullhooks, beating and shocking them during routine training sessions.

After reviewing the footage, Bristol Renaissance Faire decided not to bring elephant rides back to this year’s event.

ADI applauds Bristol Renaissance Faire for keeping elephant rides out of their annual event.

Take action!

Please thank the Fair and urge them to introduce a permanent ‘no rides’ policy – bristolfriends@renfair.com
