Las Vegas – Champagne corks will quickly be popping at PETA, as Laborious Rock Worldwide has simply introduced that when it formally takes over The Mirage in Las Vegas subsequent month, it will likely be phasing out the on line casino’s much-criticized captive-animal shows—a transfer that follows a push from PETA and native animal rights advocates. Beneath, please discover a assertion in response from PETA Basis Basic Counsel for Captive Animal Regulation Enforcement Brittany Peet:
Large cats belong within the jungle, not behind bars in a on line casino sideshow, and a desert is not any place for a dolphin. PETA is encouraging Laborious Rock to usher in its new animal-free period by discovering respected new houses for the massive cats and dealing to get the dolphins to a seaside sanctuary the place they might have extra pure lives in spacious habitats, removed from the lights and noise of the Strip.
PETA—whose motto reads, partially, that “animals are usually not ours to make use of for leisure”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For extra data, please go to PETA.org or comply with the group on Twitter, Fb, or Instagram.
