    PETA is rebuking the Baraboo attraction (i'm not calling it a zoo) for its use of elephants and tigers in its shows. This is one of the few things I agree with PETA on.

    As far as I know from the photos birdsandbats has taken, the attraction''s tiger cages are pretty bad, and the elephant pen is only sightly better, so I feel the park should phase most of it non-domestic animals out.

    In case anyone follows elephants in captivity and hadn't already heard, 2023 will officially be the last year Circus World keeps elephants. Their last two girls will be sent to Endangered Ark Foundation in Oklahoma after the summer. Here is a relevant news article from late 2022.
