Ringling Brothers Circus

Explains elephant retirement

21 Mar, 2015

The Circus explains their reasons to phase out the show’s elephants by 2018.

We came to the conclusion that our resources were better used saving these magnificent animals rather than fighting legislation. We’re in the live family entertainment business not in fighting City Hall all across the United States. It was a bittersweet decision. For 145 years everyone has been able to experience Ringling Brothers with elephants.
