Ringling Bros. Circus ? Demonstration Wrap-up
Thank you to everyone who participated in ARFF's educational efforts at the circus in West Palm Beach, Miami, Tampa, Lakeland, Orlando, Tallahassee, Fort Myers, Sarasota or in Jacksonville. ARFF volunteers distributed well over! 10,000 flyers. We watched several families change their minds and not purchase tickets to the circus. We also spoke to circusgoers after the show who told us, "It was my first circus, and my last."
At performances across the state, ARFF volunteers said that they were surprised at the low attendance. We also learned that Ringling Bros. is de-emphasizing animal acts. We hope this trend continues, and that Ringling will soon decide to entertain audiences without exploiting animals.
