Is it cruel to show animals at the Douglas County Free Fair?
Asked at Seventh Street on July 29, 2004
“I think it’s possible for people to treat animals cruelly in that situation, but it depends on the person showing the animal.”
“No, it’s not like it’s a circus where they dress the animals up. 4-H has been around for a long time.”
“It depends on how they treat them by providing them with basic necessities. They need to be treated with equality.”
“No, it’s not, because the people who show the animals take really good care of them and take great pride in them.”
