LONDON ICE SKATING VENUE UNDER FIRE FOR CRUEL PLANS TO FEATURE LIVE PENGUINS

亚博888PETA Calls On Queens Ice Rink to Keep Live Animals Out of Events

London – This afternoon,亚博888PETA fired off a letter to Lauren Eynon,the manager of Queens ice rink in Bayswater,urging her to cancel plans to use live penguins in a scheduled event later this month.

In the letter,亚博888PETA – whose motto reads,in part,that"animals are not ours to use for entertainment"– notes that forcing penguins to endure the stress of being hauled around and then let loose in an unfamiliar environment with hordes of strangers can only leave these sensitive animals confused,stressed,和石化。

"Using live animals in these sorts of events sends a damaging message to young people that animals are little more than living props,"says 亚博888PETA Director Elisa Allen."There are many other ways to attract customers and celebrate these fascinating animals that would not compromise their well-being.""
