Jenna Fischer Asks Indiana State Fair to Ban Elephant Rides
Jenna Fischer is letting her voice be heard and taking a stand against elephants being used for rides at fairs.
An Indiana native, Fischer is asking the Indiana State Fair to please ban elephant rides, which are being offered by Carson & Barnes Circus.
“The Office” star and animal lover recently wrote a letter on behalf of PETA stating, “Unlike me and others in the entertainment business, these animals do not choose to perform, and also unlike me, they suffer horribly in order to do so. I am hoping that you will make the kind decision to cancel the elephant rides immediately.
“I’m a mother of two. I love family-friendly events such as the fair, and I also appreciate having the opportunity to introduce my children to various animals. But as an animal advocate, I like to find the most responsible and humane ways for my kids to interact with animals—not only for the animals but also for my children so that they learn about kindness and compassion.”
Like Fischer, you too can join the fight against fairs and circuses treating animals inhumanely by reaching out to fair management.
