Eh. It's a relic of a bygone era and that sort of treatment of animals has no place in the modern world.

Also, !@#$ clowns.

I always did enjoy the acrobatics, though.

Went a couple times as a kid and just never really enjoyed it all that much, so I have no personal sorrow to this aside from the fact that it's a bit sad to see anything that's 150 years old come to an end, but times change.

I'm pretty much with GS on it. We all have fond memories of going to the circus, but to bring that kind of show in line with modern times would render it unrecognizable. It's just time for it to take its exit.
