DEMONSTRATION AGAINST THE 'ROYAL' HANNEFORD CIRCUS

DATE:   SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 19

TIME:   NOON - 2:00 PM

PLACE:  WESTCHESTER COUNTY CENTER, LOCATED AT THE INTERSECTION OF CENTRAL AVENUE AND TARRYTOWN ROAD.  CARPOOLING AVAILABLE IN WESTCHESTER.  CALL (914) 995-4050 FOR DIRECTIONS, OR EMAIL ME  ADOW@ADOW.ORG  

ALSO:   PLEASE WRITE LETTERS TO THE JOURNAL NEWS RE THIS CIRCUS.  

SOME TOPICS TO MENTION:

-  THIS CIRCUS OFFERS ELEPHANT RIDES ONE HOUR BEFORE EACH PERFORMANCE, WHICH IS INSANITY ESP. IN LIGHT OF THE RECENT KILLING OF A TRAINER IN INDIANA (BRINGING THE TOTAL OF THESE SUCH DEATHS TO 65 SINCE 1990, with 130 injured.)

-  ABSOLUTELY CITE ALL CRUELTY ISSUES FOR THE ANIMALS

-  A TIGER ESCAPED A CIRCUS LAST YEAR IN QUEENS, CAUSING A FIVE-CAR COLLISION WITH FRACTURES AND OTHER INJURIES.

-  WESTCHESTER COUNTY HAS BEEN SERVED WITH A 'NOTICE OF DANGEROUS CONDITION' REGARDING TRAVELING ANIMAL ACTS.  THIS ESTABLISHES COUNTY LIABILITY IN THE EVENT OF CIRCUS-RELATED ACCIDENTS, WHICH COULD NEGATIVELY AFFECT PROPERTY TAXES.  

*NOTE: DO NOT HESITATE TO MENTION THE LIABILITY ISSUE, WHICH NEEDS TO BE RAISED.   IF IT WERE EASY TO INSTALL ORDINANCES, THEY WOULD BE POPPING UP LIKE MUSHROOMS, WHICH THEY ARE NOT.
