The Pfizer demo is being postponed for a couple of weeks in light of the announcement that Jimmy Fallon slated to host an animal exhibitor on The Tonight Show on Friday. Activists will converge on NBC's studios Thursday and call on the host to end the outdated segments, which expose frightened wild animals to bright lights and loud crowds all for a cheap thrill. One animal supplier for The Tonight Show was fined $7,300 for violating state wildlife laws just last year, and a recent National Geographic cover story exposed the abuse and deprivation endured by animals used for entertainment.
Violent and abusive training methods are also common throughout the industry.

Posters and leaflets will be provided.
