Hoping to become Gavin Newsom’s successor, Cox travels from city to city – with a focus on San Diego. The campaign erupted in force and Cox was looking for a strong man.
This aid is indeed very strong, but San Diego law does not allow keeping wild animals such as lions, tigers and bears anywhere other than in zoos.
San Diego Humane Society officials have launched an official investigation into Tag, who accompanies the gubernatorial candidate on every trip.
The presence of the animal can count on the anger of animal activists. “The days when wild animals were seen as dolls or toys must be over,” says People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
According to the organization, “dangerous wild animals” should not be used for political purposes.
Democrat MP Ben Hueso demands action, while Cox says his bear is having a good time. “We have done everything to ensure its comfort and safety and have been approved by various government agencies. California needs a bestial change. We must shake our left feathers.
Cox thus remains close to its marketing strategy around the animal kingdom. He advertises, among other things, with the slogan “ meet the beast ” – which does not mean Tag …
Cox positions himself as “the beast”, with opposing candidate Gavin Newsom acting as “the beauty”. Cox’s official website is registered at voteforthebeast.com and his Twitter account is called @beastjohncox.
Despite Tag’s best efforts, the campaign is not yet going as hoped. Republican Cox is in the polls with 36% of the vote, which could allow Democrat Gavin Newsom to sit for a while.
