PETA Protests Elephants at Elephant Walk

PETA is mad about A&M using elephants during Elephant Walk.

SAN ANTONIO – Animal activist group PETA has called out Texas A&M University on its use of elephants in the traditional Elephant Walk, and demands the university removes the animals from the ceremony.


“Like dying elephants, which wander the jungle looking for a place to die after their value to the herd is over, thousands of seniors will join hands and wander aimlessly about campus visiting landmarks for the symbolic ‘last time,'” the tradition’s webpage states.

I don’t recall there being elephants (other than the seniors themselves) during my time there. But now I adamantly want them to be retained just because PETA is raising a stink.

    If PETA is against it, excellent reason to keep the elephants.
