No more elephants

Thanks to the pressure of animal-rights groups, Ringling is putting its tortured elephants out to pasture; unfortunately, they will still be the subject of medical testing laboratories.

Hopefully, one day, the abused tigers, lions and other wild animals that are used in circuses will be given their freedom as well. I am glad that people are becoming more aware that all circus animals are sentient beings which need our care and protection and should not be exploited and abused for commercial gain.
