Law banning traveling elephants performances takes effect in Colorado

Featured Posts


A new Colorado law, known as the "Traveling Animal Protection Act," will officially take effect on Aug. 14, during the last week of the Colorado Renaissance Festival in Larkspur.

The festival allows people to purchase rides on elephants and also features the animals in parades.

Roland Halpern, the executive director for Colorado Voters for Animals, worked with state legislators to get Senate Bill 21-135 passed during the 2021 legislative session. 

“The way that an elephant’s back is configured, people think it’s okay to ride on them,” said Halpern. “It’s not; it’s totally different than horseback. It’s actually very painful to the elephant and can cause problems for it.”

I mean they've proven horseback riding also hurts the horse's back.

But I'm glad they banned this, elephants are intelligent animals and they shouldn't be exploited for entertainment.
