Ringling Brothers/Barnum & Bailey May No Longer Have Elephants But The Kora Shrine Circus DOES!

by Anura Guruge


From their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/korashriners). And I think this is RECENTLY. They had 3 performing today (Saturday) in Augusta.

From their Facebook page. Looks colorful enough.


From their Facebook page again. I heard that Ringling have stopped doing the human cannonball too!


We were in Maine today, and Deanna’s niece had taken her 3-year old son to ‘the circus‘ in Augusta, Maine.

She was telling us all about it when she casually mentioned that ‘this year’ they had 3 elephants performing — whereas in past years they have only had one perform.

WOW. I grilled her. Appears that there were NO demonstrators, no protests.

Wow.

I checked it out as soon as I got home.

VERY different to Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey.

For a start they do a 9:30am show. That would be good for some kids. I heard, however, that the 9:30am show, in Augusta, on Saturday, April 22, 2017, was not even half full!

Their MOST expensive tickets — reserved seating — is only $12! I am not even going to tell you what we are paying for our tickets, in Manchester, for Ringling Brothers.

The elephant dichotomy seems incongruous.

Was it JUST Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey that were targeted? If so that would be unfair. How do we know that these other circuses treat their elephants any differently?

I need to research this further.

I have no issues whatsoever with topless pictures or actual toplessness.

Culturally the British have not had an issue with topless pictures in tabloid newspapers either.

This was, of course, ‘National Geographic‘ territory. They have, since their acquisition by ‘Fox’, appeared to have stopped these pictures — just as I suspected.
