"US circuses are circling the wagons against a proposed law in Congress that would ban using elephants under the big top, a tradition that animal rights activists say causes terrible suffering. The bill, introduced this month in the House of Representatives by Virginia Congressman Jim Moran, aims directly at traveling circuses by seeking to outlaw exotic or wild animals from performances if they have been traveling within the previous 15 days."

    I believe that Congress has more important things to consider, every name attached to this and similar nonsense bills should be censored and then publicly rebuked. This kind of foolishness can no longer be tolerated.
