Demi Moore Wants Circus Elephants Protected From Bullhooks

Today in Georgia, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners is voting on whether or not to ban bullhooks from being used to train circus elephants.

And there is nothing like a little star power to help get the word out and public opinion on the side of the animals.

Demi Moore partnered with PETA to write a letter to the board. She wrote, “Today, elephant sanctuaries and most zoos – including Zoo Atlanta – never use bullhooks or other weapon-like tools to punish elephants. I hope you will extend that inherent decency to elephants used in circuses… The elephants deserve our kindness, respect, and protection.”

What’s a bullhook you ask? A training tool with a sharp steel hook. Think of something like a fire poker that’s used to hit the animal any time they do not do something the trainer wants.

We recently reported that the elephant star of “Water for Elephants” had a brutal history with the bullhook.

We hope that today the board of commissioners makes the decision to protect elephants passing through the state. They have a bad enough situation being forced to perform in a circus. At the very least they should be free from physical abuse.
