We are 2 for 2 in tiger magic show takedowns this year!
Thank you to everyone who responded to our call for action to reach out to a venue that proposed to host Dirk Arthur's tiger magic show. Success came more quickly than even we could have imagined...in just 3.5 days!
Not only did the venue decide not to host the show, they wrote a very insightful statement that proves they truly understood what was at issue: the well-being of the animals. Notoriety's CEO, Ken Henderson wrote, in part: "...it is imperative that all performers have a choice to perform...and the performers in the proposed show do not and with that, we will not be moving forward with the show. "
We are also grateful to Fox 5 Las Vegas for jumping quickly on the story and inviting us on to discuss the situation. See CWI Executive Director Carrie LeBlanc's comments at this link.
CWI has secured space at a Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries-accredited sanctuary and hopes to work with Dirk Arthur to ensure that his animals can live more normal, natural lives outside of constant confinement and magic stages. Our work continues.
If you appreciate victories like these, we hope you will consider supporting our work for animals with a tax-deductible donation of any amount. We can't do anything without you!
Thank you once again to everyone who spoke up. Your voice truly matters!
