Ringling Bros. Circus Hit With Largest Fine In Circus History

Filed under: Legal MattersPETAElephantsAnimal Cruelty

PETA has been campaigning for a while against the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus because they have undercover videos of them being cruel to animals, specifically their elephants.

Now they have finally won a battle in the war for animal welfare.

Feld Entertainment, the parent company of the Ringling circus, has to pay a $270,000 settlement for alleged violations of the Animal Welfare Act.

Other than the death of a lion, and a baby elephant, other elephants are beaten with sharp, steel tipped billhooks.

Now that they've finally been penalized, they must train all their employees who handle animals and hire a staff member dedicated to AWA compliance.

This is a great victory of PETA and elephants, but the war is far from over, there are still sick or hurt elephants forced to perform in the circus.

Good thing someone is willing to fight for the animals.

Save the elephants!
