Stop Using Animals as Live Props for Entertainment

Target: Kelly Stroman, Executive Director of Manhattan Beach Business & Professionals Association

Goal: Don’t use live animals at Manhattan Beach Business & Professionals Association’s events.

Recently, the Manhattan Beach Business & Professionals Association reportedly held an event in which live reindeer were used as props. Animals used for entertainment face physical and mental hardships daily. The company was reportedly informed of the horrors these animals face, but this knowledge apparently hasn’t stopped them from planning on using animals again.

Animal held in the entertainment industry are denied everything that is natural to them. They are often held in small cages and carted around from city to city. They are often used for shows and are surrounded by large, loud crowds which causes extreme stress and discomfort.

Sign this petition and demand Manhattan Beach Business & Professionals Association stop using live animals at events. These animals should not be exploited for human entertainment.


Dear Ms. Stroman,

Recently, your company held a party and used live reindeer as props. Animals are not objects and should not be treated as such. It is cruel and irresponsible to continue using live animals at events and I’m hoping you stop this inhumane practice.

Animals held in the entertainment industry are denied everything natural to them. They are not allowed to look for a mate, reproduce, or run free. Instead, these animals are often confined in small cages and carted around from city to city. They are often thrown into incredibly stressful and uncomfortable situations where they are surrounded by large, loud crowds.

This is not the life nature intended for these animals. Every day they endure mental and physical hardships all for a few moments of human entertainment. No animal should be exploited for this and I’m hoping you agree. Please consider no longer using live animals at your events.

  1. The use of animals for people’s entertainment is exploitative and cruel.
    The people running these animal entertainment businesses DON’T CARE about the animals. They are USING them for profit. They often – maybe always – abuse them – often to the point of torture.
    When people participate in events using these animals, they are condoning, normalizing and promoting ANIMAL CRUELTY.

  2. You assholes, of you wanne have fun, better use poachers, funhunters (Vegas safari club), seal- and wolfkillers as targets. Let them run, hunt after them and shoot them !!!

    These idiot people should be dressed up as animals and paraded around at the parties!!! Please protect the innocent animals that are!!

  4. Animals were not put on earth for ill educated humans to laugh at. Use human entertainers to do tricks, they will probably be more entertaining than animals and will not be upset and stressed. Use some intelligence please.

    Animals are NOT ENTERTAINERS!!!
