Today, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus announced they are "phasing out" elephant acts in the next several years. They should have said they surrendered to the extremists and terrorists. After years of harassment, slander and libel, a history is being killed because certain extremists want to eliminate animals from our lives. I will never give up; I will never cave in. I will continue to care for my tigers and exhibit them in this great American tradition.
