Despite enormous public opposition, the Nevada County Fair Board decided to proceed with plans to offer Have Trunk Will Travel elephant rides at this yearís event and so was faced with protests each day outside the fair.

The board had received our No Fun for Elephants video and evidence in March, followed by repeated requests for meetings. The boardís public meeting was addressed by ADIís Matt Rossell, together with objections from hundreds of residents and several animal protection groups. ADI will continue to press the board to review the evidence and end the elephant rides.
