Demand Festival Stop Using Animals for Entertainment

Target: Steve LeVine, Chief Entertainment Officer of Steve LeVine Entertainment

Goal: Stop using animals for entertainment at the annual Chandler Chamber Ostrich Festival.

An annual festival is cruelly using animals for entertainment. Every year, Arizona holds the Chandler Chamber Ostrich Festival, which uses live animals for various events. Unfortunately, animals trapped within the entertainment industry face a variety of hardships and are often abused and neglected.

Before this year’s festival, two zebras escaped and one was killed by a car. The other was captured and brought back to the festival to be used in a race shortly after his return. The race consisted of the zebra, ostriches, camels, emus, and pigs, and it is very likely these animals were terrified as they were forced to sprint among a large, loud crowd. These animals are owned by the company Hendrick’s Exotic Animal Farm, which has been cited multiple times by the USDA for violating the Animal Welfare Act.

Sign this petition and demand the Chandler Chamber Ostrich Festival stop using live animals for events. No animal should be abused and neglected for entertainment.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. LeVine,

It recently came to my attention that the annual Chandler Chamber Ostrich Festival uses live animals for various events and forces them to entertain large, loud crowds in incredibly stressful environments. Forcing these animals to perform is cruel and unnecessary.

The animals used for the festival come from Hendrick’s Exotic Animal Farm, which has a history of violating the Animal Welfare Act. During one past race, an ostrich ran into a barrier, broke his leg, and then had to be euthanized. During another, an ostrich was trampled to death by two other animals. This year before the festival, two zebras escaped and one was killed by a car. It is time to stop using live animals for events before another faces unnecessary injury or death.

Please consider no longer using animals for entertainment at the Chandler Chamber Ostrich Festival.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    I was not aware that zebra, ostriches, camels, and emus are native to North America. So why are they being used for American “entertainment”? And in ever knew that a pig (which is naturally fat) goes in for racing. What sort of abhorrent sub-human is this Steve LeVine, who makes money out of abusing animals like this? Wouldn’t it be lovely if he gets reincarnated as a defenceless animal – who get abused like he abuses animals? Delicious!!!!!
