I've gotten some emails and Facebook messages about the traditional circus animal walk that comes ahead of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. The circus is in town this week with shows Wednesday to Sunday at the PNC Arena in Raleigh.
The walk has been an annual tradition here for some families, who watched the elephants unload from the long circus train and make a short walk to the PNC Arena. Like last year, there will be no public event. Last year, Feld Entertainment, the company that produces the circus, said that the elephants would be moved from the train to the PNC Arena by trailer instead.
A quick online search finds that the walks also have been canceled in other cities in the last couple of years as well.
