In 2011 Port Elizabeth, South African cricket player Wayne Parnell shot an ad for PETA India, calling for a ban on the use of animals in circuses.
Parnell followed that ad up with another one against zoos saying; “”We all love our freedom and own space, and that’s no different for animals”, said Parnell. “Instead of seeing them locked up in cages, I’d prefer to see them running through the fields in the wild. I encourage people to protect animals’ natural habitat and let them be as they’re intended to be.”

Wayne ‘Dillon’ Waheed’ ‘Pigeon’ Parnell – born 30 July 1989 in Port Elizabeth, made his first-class debut for Eastern Province in October 2006, at the age of seventeen, against South Western Districts scoring 17 and taking one wicket. In his second first-class match, he recorded figures of four for seven, and, in only his fifth first-class match, he took a hat-trick against Western Province: all three batsman were bowled. He was described as “the most talked about cricketer to hit the first-class scene for some time.”
In 2008 Parnell was awarded the Coca-Cola Khaya Majola U19 Player of the Tournament and the CSA U19 Cricketer of the Year while representing Eastern Province.
Parnell matriculated from Grey High School, Port Elizabeth, South Africa in 2007 and studied Human Resource Management at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University.
