Governor Jerry Brown vetoed the bill to ban the bullhook in California.
The bullhook is a tool which allows people to control elephants and the result is that elephants are being forced to perform unnatural behaviors solely for human entertainment. More information: http://www.buzzfeed.com/mjs538/why-its-time-to-end-the-use-of-bullhooks-once-and-for-all#.fwN56Y5kY
Because of this cruelty that is inflicted upon elephants, more than 2/3rds of the California Assembly and Senate voted to ban the bullhook in the state. A veto can be overridden by 2/3rds vote of the Assembly and Senate.
Solution: YOU CAN HELP!
Contact your State Assembly member and Senator tomorrow and ask them to vote to override Governor Brown’s veto: http://www.legislature.ca.gov/legislators_and_districts/legislators/your_legislator.html
It’s time to ban the bullhook in California!
