A Circus Trial
Yesterday the D.C. Circuit Court heard opening arguments in an animal rights case against the Ringling Brothers and Barnum& Bailey Circus. The trial has been years in the making, with special interest groups trying to show that the Circus’ treatment of their elephants violates the Endangered Species Act. If you are interested in finding out more, both the Circus and the Animal Welfare Institute have created websites to plead their respective cases and provide court documents to interested parties.
