trump elephant2The March 5 announcement by Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus that it will halt the use of elephants brought additional, welcome news to circus-going families. Donald Trump announced via Twitter he too will end his appearances at The Greatest Show on Earth:

Ringling Brothers is phasing out their elephants. I, for one, will never go again.

The last of the show elephants will retire to Ringling’s  Center for Elephant Conservation by 2018, according to CEO Kenneth Feld. There is no word yet on whether Mr. Trump will join them.
