Animal Crackers Uncaged In Box Redesign After PETA Pressure

Big victories can come in small packages, the animal rights organization said.

The noble beasts caged for 116 years on boxes of Nabiscos Barnums Animals Crackers now roam the wilderness in a package redesign.

Parent company Mondelez International made the move after pressure from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals to make over the circus-themed box, which depicted the animals behind bars formore than a century, according to the Associated Press.

Big victories can come in small packages, the animal rights group wrote on its website Monday.

The new box for Barnums Animals perfectly reflects that our society no longer tolerates caging and chaining exotic animals for circus shows, it added. PETA is celebrating this redesign just as weve celebrated theclosure of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circusand an end to the use of wild animals in many other circuses.

The redesign is now on U.S. store shelves, displaying a zebra, elephant, lion, giraffe and gorilla wandering free side by side. The brand has temporarily revamped its packaging before to highlight wildlife conservation efforts, but this time the change is permanent,USA Today notes.

When PETA reached out about Barnums, we saw this as another great opportunity to continue to keep this brand modern and contemporary, Jason Levine, Mondelezs chief marketing officer for North America,杭州百花坊 said in a statement to Associated Press.

The Ringling Bros. circusstopped using elephantsin its shows in 2016 after PETA and others animal advocacy groupsaccused the circus of cruelty. The circusshuttered for good in 2017after 146 years because of poor ticket sales.

The cookies live on but at least the creatures who represent them are no longer in captivity on the box.
