PETA's Words About Chimpfabulous, Owners Are The Rosaire Circus AKA Big Cat Habitat "Sanctuary"

On Saturday, December 5, organizers of the ChristmasVille festival in Rock Hill, South Carolina, plan to host a cruel event in which chimpanzees are forced to ride horses for spectators' entertainment.

Chimpanzees used in the entertainment industry are forcibly separated from their mothers while they are often still nursing infants. In the wild, chimpanzees remain close to their mothers until they're about 8 years old and are inseparable from their mothers for the first few years of life. By the time that the animals are around 8 years old, they become so strong that they can't be managed and are generally discarded at poorly run roadside zoos or facilities that masquerade as sanctuaries. A PETA investigation into one such "refuge" revealed that former "celebrity" animals were living in small cages that were littered with weeks' worth of garbage and feces and were denied the basic necessities of wholesome and ample food and adequate veterinary care.

Training baby chimpanzees almost always includes physical abuse to ensure that the animals live in fear and know that the trainer is "boss." An undercover investigation into a prominent California training facility revealed that trainers punched, kicked, and hit chimpanzees with broom handles. Cruel exhibitors deny these social and intelligent animals all that is natural and important to them.

Please use the form below to send a message to festival organizers urging them not to exploit chimpanzees for the sake of celebrating Christmas.
