Over the weekend, comedienne Sarah Silverman reached out on her social media channels to get the word out on banning bullhooks from circuses in Los Angeles. To her over 4 million Twitter followers and 202,000+ Facebook fans, she posted:

“Hey LA- Elephants are pure goodness & they’re being hurt. Help w a vote…”

Silverman then linked to a contact form provided by the Humane Society of the United States that makes it easy peasy to email and call the Los Angeles City Council members and urge them to ban the use of bullhooks in circuses or traveling shows with elephants within city limits.

According to the HSUS, a bullhook is “a sharp metal tool that resembles a fireplace poker. It’s a long, heavy rod with a steel point and hook at one end which trainers use to poke, prod, and hit elephants on their sensitive skin — all for a few moments of human entertainment. The presence of a bullhook means that elephants are never free from the threat of physical punishment.”

If you or someone you know lives in LA, encourage them to contact their City Council members and tell them you want bullhooks out of LA! To learn more about efforts to ban the bullhook everywhere, check out the Facebook page, Ban the Bullhook.

And big thanks to Sarah Silverman for being an ele-friend!
