What's In A Name? Man Changes His To 'Circuseshurtanimals.Com'

What's In A Name? Man Changes His To 'Circuseshurtanimals.Com'
Hello. My name is CircusesHurtAnimals.com.

Norfolk, Va. (RPRN) 01/13/12 — PETA Foundation Staffer Shows His .commitment to Helping Animals Used in Circuses

 — The PETA Foundation staffer formerly known as Dan Carron is getting a fresh start in 2012 in a very big way—he's taking on a whole new identity. In an effort to continuously point out that circuses beat, whip, and shock animals to force them to perform silly tricks, the committed activist has legally changed his name to CircusesHurtAnimals.com—the address of PETA's new website devoted to information about circus cruelty—and he has the driver's license to prove it.

and primates to filthy boxcars or trucks and drag them around the country in all weather extremes. But when he attended a Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus elephant walk and saw how the trainers used bullhooks—heavy steel-hooked rods that resemble fireplace pokers—to intimidate the elephants in full view of the public, he decided to move beyond a personal boycott and dedicate his time, energy, and name to encourage everyone to patronize only animal-free entertainment.

For more information, please visit http://www.peta.org.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), with more than 2 million members and supporters, is the largest animal rights organization in the world.

PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: on factory farms, in laboratories, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of beavers, birds and other "pests," and the abuse of backyard dogs.

PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns.
