Animal Rights Group Plays Copy Cat as it Takes Its Message to the Street

A national animal rights group has hit the road to promote its new anti-circus campaign.

According to a news release from the Animal Protection Institute (API), the animal rights activists created a “mobile” billboard to protest the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus performances in Tampa.  The ad was rolled out during a special press conference on January 5, the day the circus arrived in town.

The billboard, which was refused by outdoor advertisers, shows an elephant in chains and asks, “Would you chain your dog for most of her life? Why pay a circus to do it to elephants?”

The U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance noticed a striking similarity between this billboard and that of another animal rights group.

“API’s billboard appears to be a spin-off of a People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals anti-fishing billboard,” said U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance Field Director Tony Celebrezze.  “PETA’s controversial ad depicts a dog with a fishhook in its lip and reads, ‘If you wouldn’t do it to a dog, why do it to a fish?’”

The API campaign also included a series of 30 second television spots that ran in the Tampa area between Dec 31 and January 6 on Animal Planet, Lifetime Movie Network, TBS and The Learning Channel.

API has a long history of trying to abolish hunting and trapping programs as well as other animal use activities.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
