Wild Animals No Longer Exhibited at the Brookhaven Fair

From monkey rodeos to lion, tiger, and bear acts, the Brookhaven Fair was long the most notorious fair on the Island due to its exploitation of wild and exotic animals. After years of letters, protests, and town meetings, Brookhaven Supervisor Ed Romaine made his feelings about cruel animal acts known to the venue and the wild animals were kept off the fair’s itinerary.
