Oh for Cotten Picken Sake....Now Hawaii has joined into this ordeal??? I remember going to Indio, here in California in February, where they road these animals for people to sit in the stands and laugh...Today, I have no clue if it still continues, but when I was younger they dressed them up in costumes...WT??????????

It's disappointing but not surprising that would take place here in Hawaii, I've emailed all the people on the list that was given, and hopefully through some miracle someone will listen. Sad in Hawaii!!!! :(

I didn't have the time to send out the emails, but will try to later. Animals should not be used for entertainment.
