Los Angeles -- Representatives of PETA, Animal Defenders International, In Defense of Animals,
Last Chance for Animals, and the Animal Protection and Rescue League will
descend on the Staples Center on Wednesday—opening day of the Ringling Bros.

When: Wednesday, July 11, 12 noon

wilds of Asia, where they would roam up to 30 miles a day. In circuses, they
are kept in chains, sometimes for days on end. They are dragged around the
country in poorly ventilated trailers and boxcars for up to 50 weeks a year in
all weather extremes.
