CWI Investigations: Colorado Renaissance Festival (2017)
Exotic animals have no place in a congested, loud festival setting, yet that is exactly the position that the Colorado Renaissance Festival put elephants, a tiger, camels, and other exotic cats in. We were especially disturbed to see 33 year old Paige the elephant being paraded through the festival and forced to give rides in an endless loop throughout the day.
The safety of both humans and animals were constantly in jeopardy as elephants and camels gave rides and were paraded through the festival, and exotic cats were only minimally restrained....and in some cases not restrained at all!
Watch and share the video below, and never attend a Renaissance festival that uses animals!
