Ringling Bros. Circus Closing After More Than 100 Years!
It's about time! 146+ years is more than excused time for the exploitation and abuse of
wild animals and endangerment and occasional loss of human life , justified as
"entertainment"...The Running Of The Bulls" in Spain would be a nice next! for me but I'm aware that could take another 100 plus....
Oh Splanky, you're no fun! hehehehehehehehehehe!

I hate animal mistreatment in any form!

So, they announce the first female ringleader in the history of the circus and two days later, they close down?

This decision is strictly business. Feld Entertainment operated two private trains that were in use basically 365 days of the years. Operating two private trains is an expensive proposition. Factor in all the other expenses of maintaining two circus units (there use to be a third) and the cost is astronomical.
Concessions were the key to Ringling's financial success and low attendance meant less people buying overpriced toys for their kids. It's amazing it stayed in business as long as it did.
What do you mean the circus is closed,isn't the clubhouse still open??? Hehehehe.
