36 Years Opposing Ringling Bros. Circus, 36 Years Wasted:

PETA would have you believe that their 36 years of protests are responsible for this supposedly momentous turn of events – the reality is really quite different. Cast your memory back to the spring of 2015 when Ringling first announced that it would be phasing out the use of elephants .
