Ringling Brothers & Barnum & Bailey ("Ringling Brothers") touts itself as the largest animal circus in the world. Its menagerie includes: elephants, horses, tigers, and a variety of other animals. "The Greatest Show on Earth", as it bills itself, is also home to immeasurable pain and suffering.

Discussed are Born Free USA's lawsuit against Ringling and reasons not to attend the circus.

Heads up from (and shout out to) Born Free USA

Published 09/08/09

An expedition team in Papua New Guinea for the BBC programme ‘Lost Land of the Volcano’ has filmed two Buff-faced Pygmy Parrots for the first time. The parrots stand less than 9cm tall and weigh 11.5g (0.41oz). To quote the report on the BBC website (which has some nice video), “The tiny bird, which is not much bigger than an adult person’s thumb, is smaller than some of the insects with which it shares the forest”. Cute. (Thanks to Monica Engebretson of Born Free USA for the heads-up.)

Two elephants surrendered to zoo

Published 08/24/09

A Texas man whose family has circus ties had to give up two Asian elephants, 40-year-old Jewel and 39-year-old Tina. Both were dangerously underweight. Davenport agreed to pay a $3,000 fine, in exchange for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service dropping complaints against him for not having proper purchasing permits for the pair. The two elephants were being transported to an undisclosed zoo.

Born Free USA believes elephants have no place in zoos and that they would be better off released to an elephant sanctuary.
