Hey Steinbrenner - act ethically

Published in METRO WWW.METRO.US 6/19, 2006:

Regarding “Belmont is best bet for Boss” (June 9): I’m glad to see that George Steinbrenner doesn’t only pimp his baseball players - he prostitutes animals as well.

Actually, his profiting off race horses isn’t the first time he’s pimped animals: He rents stadium parking lot space to the UniverSoul Circus, which has the multiple violations that animal-user circuses usually have, and which actually leases its animals to avoid upkeep, liability, etc. In fact, two kangaroos just died in their ‘care’ after being forced to participate in archaic “boxing kangaroo” events. Shame on you, George. Try to act ethically for a change; surely you have enough money by now that you don’t have to make a buck off animal cruelty.
