- The decision today did have a reason, it was in our press statement and the original AP article – we determined the Ringling Bros. Center for Elephant Conservation could accommodate all 11 elephants currently on the circus, hence the announcement of the expedited time line. It had nothing to do with ticket sales (which are quite healthy by the way).
- Mr. Pacelle and HSUS have no knowledge of our animal care, training or the Center. In addition, his organization and it’s allied groups paid Feld Entertainment over $25 million for bribing a witness in federal court (Wayne even signed one of the checks in question).
