Praise Ban on Cruel Bullhooks

Elephant guido da rozze (1)

Target: Jerry Brown, Governor of California

Goal: Thank California for banning the bullhooks, cruel and painful elephant training tools.

Bullhooks are long, sharp sticks with a metal poker at the end that are commonly used on elephants imprisoned by the entertainment industry. They are typically used during training to force elephants to perform tricks.

Thankfully, more and more places are recognizing how cruel bullhooks actually are. Many cities have banned the tool and earlier this year, Rhode Island became the first state to ban the tool. Now, California has joined the club and become the second state to ban bullhooks.

Sign this petition to thank California for banning these cruel training tools. Hopefully more states will follow in California and Rhode Island’s footsteps.


Dear Governor Brown,

Recently, you made the bold and inspiring move to ban the use of the cruel elephant training tool, the bullhook. California is now the second state to ban this tool.

As you are probably aware, bullhooks are typically used by trainers to beat elephants into performing tricks. It is heartwarming to see people taking the well being of animals seriously and protecting them in any way possible.

Thank you for your commitment to helping animals and banning bullhooks. I can only hope more states follow in your footsteps.

      you said it, kay….those idiotic assh^^^S need to target practice on each other 1st before suffering them on an innocent animal. cruel, unusual, punishment, is what a ‘human’ would say. torture is what it’s called when forced on animals.

  2. Come on the rest of the USA and the world – stand up and do the same!

    More and more we can see that the elected people in state’s offices don’t fulfil their duties towards public…Then a change would be essential…
