The Ethics of Using Force on Circus Animals

The Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus is in town, and the menagerie of animals that accompanies it.  But in recent years, circuses have acquired dubious reputations for mistreatment of animals.  We talk about animal care with a representative of Ringling Brothers, and we'll discuss the issues with a director of enforcement with PETA.
