Please Join Me In My Request To Bring Back The Elephants One Last Time

As you may be aware, Feld Inc. - the owners of Ringling Brothers And Barnum & Bailey Circus - have announced that the circus will be giving its last performances this spring. One of the deciding reasons for the closure is apparently that animal rights whackos drove the last nail into the coffin with their successful campaign to eliminate elephants from the performances. Ticket sales which were already declining took a nose dive once the elephants were gone.

The thing about the elephants is that they made great The Greatest Show On Earth. Feld Inc. says it never anticipated the sharp decline in tickets sales that took place after the removal of the elephants from the performances but I have to wonder, what did they expect! Did they think that members of animal rights groups would suddenly flock to buy circus tickets in appreciation for it. Whatever, I suppose it a moot point because the end is upon us, The Greatest Show On Earth will soon be nevermore.

With that in mind, I have sent a request to Feld. Inc.. My request is simply that in honor of the loyal fans of Ringling Brothers And Barnum & Bailey Circus - they bring back the elephants for this last tour and yes they still own the elephants - see this. I am hopeful that many of you will make the same request of them, whether you plan to see them one last time or not, and that you encourage your family and friends to do likewise by requesting they bring back the elephants for this last tour.

Feld Inc's. worldwide headquarters' email address is:

Their customer service email address is: 

The content of my request was as follows:

"Dear Feld Inc.,

I just tried to purchase tickets for your final show on Sunday May 21st at the New Coliseum in Uniondale, NY. I had to settle for tickets on Friday night May 19th. That is okay by me but I have a special request of you not only for myself but for all of those who are fans of Ringling Brothers And Barnum & Bailey Circus.

I, and I am sure that millions of other Americans who love Ringling Brothers And Barnum & Bailey Circus, in fact certainly all of those who will attend your last tour, would ask that you bring back the elephants for this final tour. Maybe it would be impractical or not cost effective but please think of the smiles you would put on the faces and of all the joy you would put into the hearts of the ladies, gentleman, boys & girls, children of all ages who would be in attendance if each show had at least a few elephants there to perform. If you at all wish to honor your fans with performances they deserve, for sticking with you until the end, then please, I implore you, make this happen! Don't go out with a whimper - go out with the memory of your circus truly being The Greatest Show On Earth!

All the best,
Glenn B..."

I also included my phone number on the off chance they want to get back to me personally. Yes, I realizes this is probably not going to happen, that is unless we - the normal people who loved seeing the elephants at the circus and who loved to see the smiles they put on the faces of children, do something to make it happen. I wrote to both of them with the same request. It only takes a few moments, so I truly hope you will join me in doing the same.

All the best,
Glenn B
