State Rep Wants End To Travelling Circuses

People for the Ethical Treatment of  Animals is sending a new letter calling for the Big E to stop using  animals in exhibits.  

The message comes after images purportedly showed a  sick elephant and a camel being forced to stand up.  

PETA claims the  petting zoo company, R.W. Commerford and Sons, has a lengthy rap sheet  of animal welfare violations.  

Commerford and the Big E have denied that  the animals being used are in any distress.

Meantime, Springfield State Representative Angelo Puppolo says he will re-file a measure that so far has not made it out of committee, that would ban so-called "travelling circuses" from the state.
