“Last year Senator Lara sponsored an attempt to eliminate the human/elephant bond. Governor Brown wisely chose to veto it. Senator Lara does not trust the judgment of the Governor; he has brought the bill back making it a civil penalty instead of a criminal penalty.”

the back story-the short of it:
“SB 1062 is the new bill introduced in California that would ban anything that an elephant trainer has in their hand, not just the guide (bullhook).
Since this new bill creates a civil statue instead of a criminal one, it is open to the interpretation of any person who wants to file suit.
That means that this bill would include target poles, ball point pens, or anything the complainant says is “designed to inflict pain” because anything can be misused in the wrong hands.
This bill could be used to bring multiple frivolous suits against all zoos in California, bankrupting them with court costs before the merits of the case are even heard.
This affects you because it can be spread to other states and other animals; elephants are just the first step.”
Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists are all ready using Civil suits to take animals from their long standing owners by the ‘Preponderance of Evidence’ even when there isn’t any…this allows them to insinuate anything and everything Fight this tooth and nail-EXTREMELY Dangerous Bill!!!
