Deny Permit for Circus Animals

Feld Entertainment, the owner of Ringling Brothers and Barnem & Bailey Circus, recently paid over a quarter of million dollars, $270,000, for violating the Animal Welfare Act.


Now Ringling is currently requesting a permit that would allow the circus to continue harming endangered Asian elephants and leopards. With such a history of violations, it is clear that Ringling cannot meet the requirements of the Endangered Species Act, and should not be given a permit.
