      • The Environmental Club At Daniel Hand High School Is Planning a Boycott of the Guilford Fair
      • Their Reason: The use of animals, and animal cruelty at the Guilford Fair
      • Leader of the Club Chris Pagliuco was not a fan of Hawthorn Corps. use of caged, domesticated, rehabilitated, and exotic animals
      • The boycott will use a petition. The petition will hope to discontinue Hawthorn Corp. at future Guilford Fairs
      (Guilford Fairgrounds)
      • Fair Organizer Harvey Smith said he plans to book Hawthorn Corp. for Guilford’s Fair next year
      (Guilford Town Hall)
      • Harvey Smith, former marine biologist and Yale graduate said the animals were given the best possible care.
      • Smith said the USDA signs off on the animals used, and signs off on the use of caged animals.
      • EX: The Bronx Zoo
      • Smith said cats in particular don’t need to move around a lot. He cited the term “catnapping”
      • “ Catnapping”: Cats sit around all day, kill/eat their prey, and then sleep and/or sit around some more.
      • Pagliuco said the animals used looked “mangy”. He said there were several tigers to a cage
      • Pagliuco said the tigers were pacing back & forth and looked angry.
      • He said the clothing of the animal trainer was leather. They used whips, and communicated messages of domination
      • According to PETA, Hawthorn Corp. has a 20-year history of being fined by the USDA.
      • They’ve been fined nearly $300,000
      • Pagliuco plans to cite Hawthorn’s legal troubles in his petition
      (Daniel Hand High School in Madison)
      • All parties said previous years only used acrobats
      • Pagliuco said he thinks the fair wants to make more money by using circus animals
      • Neighboring towns don’t use Hawthorn Corp., circus animals, or charge money to attend
      • Like East Haven’s Fall Festival…
      • Branford’s Summer Festival…
      • Or Clinton’s Blue Fish Festival…
