Oakland, Calif. – PETA Foundation Deputy General Counsel Delcianna Winders’ statement follows:
Thanks to the Oakland City Council, elephants in Oakland will be protected from bullhooks—weapons that resemble a fireplace poker with a sharp hook on one end. PETA looks forward to seeing more cities across the country follow Oakland’s compassionate and progressive example.
