ROCKVILLE, Md. – A proposal to ban animals performing in circuses is being considered by officials in Montgomery County.
The proposal comes on the heels of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey announcing its end to “The Greatest Show on Earth” back in the spring.
Now some Montgomery County politicians say it’s time to fold the tents on all performing animals in circuses or other businesses that benefit from showing performing animals.
