Elephants are coming to this year’s Nevada County Fair. At yesterday’s Nevada County Fairgrounds Board of Director’s meeting, the board approved the contract with Have Trunk Will Travel to provide an elephant exhibit at this year County Fair. Over 100 people attended the meeting, with 29 people speaking out against the elephant rides, citing the possible risk of injury to cruel treatment of the animals. There were also nine people who spoke in favor of Have Trunk Will Travel and in the end, board chairman, Tom Browning, said that there was not enough said for the board to cancel the contract.
At the end of the meeting, Fair CEO, Sandy Woods, offered this statement.
