    Our entire family loves elephants, that is why we don’t go to circuses anymore. After learning about what life is really like for circus elephants we realized there’s no family fun to be had at an event that involves abusing and beating these majestic elephants to make them entertain us for a few minutes. The evidence that Ringling Bros starts beating their elephants when they are babies is overwhelming and we cannot ignore it. We would never condone or allow someone to treat our family animals inhumanely, just to make them perform tricks.

  • I am so excited to attend a special behind the scenes breakfast this weekend with my family!! I grew up attending Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Baileys Circus and I am beyond thrilled to share the same experience with my children! Watch out FUNundrum…here come the McCluskeys!!!
