Continue reading below

The Durham Fair is going ahead with plans for a new event featuring elephants despite a petition drive calling for the show’s cancellation. The petition, launched by Rachel Mann and signed by more than 3,000 people, asserted that the Durham Fair Association was supporting the mistreatment and exploitation of elephants. Mann presented her petition to fair officials at a closed meeting Wednesday night, and members then voted to keep the event, the Middletown Press reported. The fair is scheduled to run Sept. 26 to 29 at the fairgrounds in the central Connecticut town of Durham.
