Charles W. Stenholm's objections to a law that would prevent elephants, tigers, zebras and other animals from being hauled around the country like freight makes sense when one considers his agenda ("Wrong approach to animal rights," Commentary, Monday). Mr. Stenholm serves as senior policy adviser for the lobbying firm that is working to stop the U.S. Department of Agriculture from conducting mandated inspections of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
