We can only hope this stands. You can read more at http://www.peta.org/b/thepetafiles/archive/2011/11/28/ringling-slapped-with-largest-penalty-in-circus-history.aspx

Amazing news, but it's not enough. Did anyone hear about the carriage horse collapsing last week on 59th and 5th avenue (NYC?). Working animals need working regulations too! And they need to be enforced.
