PETA Tip Prompts USDA Investigations Into Lancelot Kollman, Hawthorn Corporation

Fort Worth, Texas -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA) has launched an investigation into Lancelot Kollman (aka "Lance
Ramos"), whose USDA exhibitor's license was revoked in 2009, after PETA
caught and documented him in the act of illegally exhibiting tigers with the
Moslah Temple Shrine circus during its run at Fort Worth's Will Rogers Memorial
Center between October 12 and 20. Kollman's numerous previous violations of the
federal Animal Welfare Act (AWA) include using physical abuse to train animals,
denying animals adequate veterinary care, and physically injuring two young
lions so severely that one died.
"Lancelot Kollman's notorious tiger shows aren't just
miserably cruel—they're patently illegal," says PETA Foundation Director
of Captive Animal Law Enforcement Delcianna Winders. "PETA is cautioning
families that buying a ticket to the circus supports cruelty to animals—in
Kollman's case, beating young lions and tigers and leaving them to suffer and
Kollman's tiger act was leased through the Hawthorn
Corporation, which itself has been cited more than 60 times for violations of
the AWA, including for forcing tigers to live in cramped cages for months on
end. The USDA's previous actions against Hawthorn include suspending its
exhibitor's license twice, assessing more than $260,000 in penalties, and
confiscating animals such as Delhi, the first elephant ever seized by the
agency, who was rehomed to a sanctuary after an extensive PETA campaign in
2003. The USDA is also investigating Hawthorn in relation to Kollman's illegal
tiger exhibit in Fort Worth.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
