End the Elephant Rides at the Renaissance Festival
Thanks to everyone who joined us in standing up for elephants at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival on Saturday, August 24. We passed out tons of fliers, educated attendees about why elephant rides are no fun for the elephants, and got lots of supportive honks from passing motorists who saw our signs.
ARC has learned from Animal Defenders International that the supplier for the elephant rides is Trunks & Humps. During one of the most disturbing video clips in “No Fun for Elephants,” handler Mike Swain beats an elephant named Krissy, viciously drags her to the ground with a hook, and then kicks her in the face. Krissy is “owned” by Trunks & Humps, run by Bill Swain, Mike Swain’s father.
The Bristol Renaissance Fair in Wisconsin chose not to have elephant rides this year. Let’s get Minnesota to follow suit. Please send a polite message to the Ren Fest asking them to make it their policy not to have performing elephants.
