Circus company wins judge’s favor in elephant case
This photo provided by the Animal Protection Institute taken in January 2005 in Jacksonville, Fla., shows elephants of Ringling Brothers Circus being chained immediately after their unloading from the transport train and walk to the arena. A federal judge Wednesday Dec. 30, 2009, ruled in favor of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus in a case brought by animal rights activists who accused the circus of abusing elephants. U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan said former Ringling employee Tom Rider and the Animal Protection Institute did not have legal standing to sue the circus, owned by Feld Entertainment Inc. Rider and the animal protection group brought the lawsuit under the Endangered Species Act. (AP Photo/Animal Protection Agency, Bradley Stookey, File)
