On the 31st of April, Ringling Brothers Circus held one of their last shows in DC. Outside, an animal rights activist asked the departing crowd not to attend other animal-using circuses in the future as they all abuse animals. Ringlings has been seen at this very location beating tigers on stage. Now, thanks to pressure from animal rights activists and an end to the elephant acts, Ringings is finally shutting down for good after this tour.
