Circus Abuse Documentary
From , Marianne Merritt, [email protected]


On August 22, 2000 at 9:00 p.m. and midnight EST, and again on August 27, 2000 at 10:00 a.m., the Outdoor Life Network will broadcast a new documentary entitled: "Circus of Abuse: Elephants, Trainers and Tragedy." This documentary will particularly focus on the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and, as exemplified by the title, will expose the truth of what occurs underneath its "Big Top." The creators of this documentary, by and through their work on this project -- which included directly dealing with Ringling Bros. -- became very sympathetic to the plight of elephants in circuses and it should be reflected very well in this piece.
