Annual PETA Protest Goes Behind Bars

By  | 

An animal rights group made a visible statement in town Friday. PETA member Matt Rice sat in a cage on the corner of Texas Avenue and University on Friday.

The group is protesting the use of animals by the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, which is coming to College Station on July 11. He held a sign reading "Animals in circuses: Life sentence, no parole."

Some people stopped in traffic at the intersection looked and waved, while others gave curious looks.
