Here's something you don't read about every day, animal rights group PETA has praised Glenwood Springs Mall for canceling an exotic animal display.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is lauding the Glenwood Springs Mall for canceling an exotic animal display.

The animal rights group, also known as PETA, says the organization that was to have put on the display this week abuses the animals under its care.

Last week, PETA sent the mall a letter asking that it cancel the appearance by GW Exotic Animal Memorial Park, based in Wynnewood, Okla. And on Monday, PETA announced it was giving the mall its “Compassionate Business” Award for agreeing to PETA's request.

“It is a huge step, the fact that the mall has done this. We're really deeply appreciative of this and want to congratulate them for it,” said Lisa Wathne, captive exotic animal specialist for PETA.
