Join ARFF to protest the Ringling Bros. Circus
RinglingLife in the circus is inherently cruel for animals, who suffer from constant travel, abusive training, and social isolation. In the circus, virtually all of animal’s natural behaviors are thwarted.

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus has a long history of abusive treatment of elephants and other animals. In November 2011, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus agreed to pay a $270,000 fine to the USDA to settle allegations that it violated animal welfare laws in its handling of elephants, tigers and other animals. The fine was the largest ever against a circus! The alleged violations include elephants forced to perform when they were sick. (Learn more here).
