Animal activists protest outside Royal Hanneford Circus in White Plains  

(02/14/04) WHITE PLAINS - The Royal Hanneford Circus is back in town at the County Center in White Plains. While some families came to enjoy the show, others showed up to protest the circus performers' use of performing animals such as elephants and tigers.

The protesters gathered outside the "big top," saying they are concerned the animals are not treated well in circus troops. News 12 Westchester's cameras were not allowed to film the animals, but circus officials say state officials check all the animals upon arrival and departure.

The Royal Hanneford Circus runs through Monday, President's Day, at the County Center in White Plains.
