The Elephants are About to Leave the Room… or Tent

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus announced that they will be retiring their elephants at the end of May. Amongst raised scrutiny from P.E.T.A and other animal well-being groups, the plan to retire the elephants has been moved forward by a year and a half mainly due to “anti-circus” and “anti-elephant” ordinances put in place by some cities.
