Elvira: Scare People, Not Animals

Her Highness of Halloween, Elvira, knows a thing or two about fright. And there are few things that she finds as terrifying as imprisoning marine mammals in an aquarium and forcing them to endure pounding music reverberating through their cramped tanks. But that’s just what the ghouls at the Georgia Aquarium plan to do this Halloween.

The aquarium is apparently ignoring the complaint that PETA filed after the facility hosted a recent event with loud music that was visibly distressing to the marine animals, who are very sensitive to excessive noise. Elvira penned a letter to the aquarium’s president and COO, saying:

“[T]hree separate aquarium employees said that many of the confined wild animals become aggravated and even fight when the music gets pumping—and they have no safe room to escape to. This disturbs me more than Freddy vs. Jason.”

Hopefully, the Mistress of the Dark will help the aquarium see the light.

    I think it’s great that celebrities like Elvira and Martina Navratilova are speaking out for animal rights.

    ‘Disturbs me more than Freddy vs. Jason’ is the kind of phrase which makes the request seem like a joke; why throw in a jokey movie reference unless you’re joking? Anyway, that’s how conversation tends to work, I thought. Hopefully the prison workers will stop that particular element of the abuse though.
