Animal Defenders Protest Circus Elephant Treatment

Animal rights activists held a midday rally today before the opening of a weeklong engagement of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey traveling circus.
Groups such as PETA say the current tour features elephants that are routinely abused and coerced to perform while traveling long hours in cramped quarters.
Pacifica KPFK’s Ernesto Arce was at the Staples Center this afternoon where he files this report.
