Don’t Allow HBO to Use Live Animals on ‘Westworld’

Target: Casey Bloys, President of HBO

Goal: Do not allow HBO to use abused elephants.

A popular HBO show has reportedly used abused elephants on set. HBO’s Westworld allows you to explore the idea of living with interactive, lifelike robots. They allow you to live out your wildest fantasies, which involve murder, and, apparently, animal abuse. In a recent episode of Westworld, there were scenes in which guests were able to ride elephants in the park. The producers of the show opted to use real elephants.

Using elephants for entertainment should not be condoned. When animals are used for Hollywood, many times they are abused, and this is reportedly the case for the elephants used in Westworld. The elephants were from Have Trunk Will Travel. This organization was reportedly seen on video shooting its elephants with stun guns and beating them with bull-hooks, and a baby elephant was reportedly seen being hit in the head and dragged by its trunk. HBO should not condone this type of animal abuse or willingly pay this company that abuses their animals. Demand that HBO no longer use live animals in its shows.


Dear Mr. Bloys,

The use of live animals for television entertainment should not be allowed. The elephants recently used on the show Westworld were reportedly forced to perform in order to provide entertainment for humans. These elephants were reportedly seen on camera being abused in multiple different ways by the company that provided them. HBO should not condone this type of animal abuse, and these animals should not be put through this abuse for entertainment.

The elephants on the show should not be real. Action needs to be taken, and HBO should no longer allow its shows to use live animals. We demand that HBO no longer pay money to people who abuse their animals and live animals are no longer used on HBO shows.

  1. Mr Bolys, Animals Aren’t on our planet for humans to use anyway they wish. Please do Not continue to use voiceless, helpless and innocent animals on HBO. Animals belong free to be who they are meant to be. Not trapped, abused and tortured by sub-human monsters. I thought HBO had more respect for animals. I guess I was wrong. I’ll be canceling my subscription to HBO immediately! I’ll also be letting everyone I know to do the same, if your network continues to use animals. I thought you were better that Sea World. I guess not.
