Ringling Brothers Circus draws protest for their animal abuse

On the evening of April 1 and afternoon of April 2, animal rights activists showed up outside Ringling Brothers and Barnum Bailey Circus, notorious for beating and chaining elephants, tigers, and other animals. At prior protests circus attendees have reported seeing animals beaten on-stage. This time around, protesters were emphasizing that Ringling’s promise to “retire” the elephants after this year is a hoax, as the elephants are to be returned to the “Conservation for Elephant Conservation.” That is Ringling’s elephant training facility where most of the beatings and torture occur.
