The city of Los Angeles, California certainly ended the year 2012 on a very high note – at least as far as animal activists are concerned. In addition the successful achievement of No-Kill December in the city animal shelters, Los Angeles was also recognized as the city of the year 2012 by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).
According to the announcement on the PETA website, the reasons for the selection of L.A. as the city of the year included:
- Banning the Retail Sale of Cats, Dogs, and Rabbits
- Endorsing Meatless Mondays
- Taking Up a Ban on Exotic and Wild Animals in Circuses
- Dodger Stadium placing 5th on PETA’s annual list of the Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Major League Ballparks
Los Angeles certainly seems to be setting the pace for major U.S. cities!!!
