5 Ways to Speak Up for Animals Used in Entertainment
http://www.petalatino.com/en/action-alerts/5-ways-to-speak-up-for-animals-used-in-entertainment/#commentsTue, 04 Jun 2013 13:33:44 +0000http://www.petalatino.com/?post_type=alert&p=59Here are five simple ways that you can help animals abused by the entertainment industry.
]]>Here are five simple ways that you can help animals abused by the entertainment industry. Read on and remember to join PETA Latino’s Action Team in order to receive help every step of the way:
Circuses such as Ringling Bros. beat elephants with bullhooks and force them to perform cruel and painful tricks. If you’ve already taken action to stop the cruelty and shared the link to our RinglingBeatsAnimals.com website on Facebook, be sure to protest the next animal circus that arrives in your town.
There’s nothing funny about using endangered primates in ads—and 10 of the top 15 advertising agencies in the world agree. They’ve pledged not to use great apes in their ads. There’s also nothing glamorous about using animals in movies—urge your friends and family to boycott films that use animal actors. Opt for movies that use computer-generated effects instead!
Animal abuse doesn’t just stop at the big top or on the movie screen—look for it in everyday situations and keep an eye out for local fairs, “sports,” and other activities that use animals. When you do encounter abuse, remember to speak up by passing out PETA literature and discussing the issues with passersby.
It’s plain and simple: Zoos imprison animals (often in tiny, filthy, barren enclosures) in order to profit from people who go to gawk. Instead of visiting a zoo, organize a weekend trip with your friends to a reputable sanctuary!
Animals used in entertainment are in danger themselves and also pose a threat to their handlers and the public. Make the decision to inform your neighborhood and community about this issue by setting up an information table in a public place and passing out fliers. Get your friends to join or get together with local activists!
For more ways to help animals used for entertainment, connect with PETA Latino on Facebook and Twitter to stay informed about the latest demonstrations, events, and petitions, and remember always to take a stand for animals!

]]>For years, the Instituto Politécnico Nacional (IPN) in Mexico City, Mexico, has been obtaining dogs from local animal shelters to be cut apart and killed in crude surgical training laboratories at the school. Following a complaint from a distraught student, PETA has contacted school officials to let them know that 98 percent of medical schools in the United States—including prestigious institutions such as Harvard and Yale universities—have completely ended the use of animal laboratories to train medical students in favor of computer simulations, life-like manikins, and clinical training. PETA has even offered to donate simulators to replace the use of dogs and other animals at IPN. IPN students are also putting pressure on the school to end these cruel laboratories, including with a recent protest on campus.
Please use the form below to urge IPN’s president to replace the current animal laboratories with humane, non-animal teaching methods. Polite comments can be sent to:
Feel free to use our sample letter below, but remember that using your own words is always more effective.
Subject: End Cruel Dog Labs at IPN’s Medical School!
Text: I was dismayed to learn that Instituto Politécnico Nacional’s medical school is still tormenting and killing dogs in cruel surgical training laboratories. Ninety-eight percent of medical schools in the United States—and all programs in Canada—do not use any animals to train future doctors. I urge IPN join them by modernizing its medical student training program to replace experiments on animals with simulators and other humane methods.
