The circus is shutting down for good in May. Ticket sales have been declining, especially since the circus buckled to public pressure to remove elephants from the show.
We have a conversation about what the future holds for animals in the spotlight -- from the circus, to zoos, to marine parks. And what do we know about how the animals respond to their work in captivity? Our guests:
- Dr. Lawrence Torcello, associate professor in the Department of Philosophy at RIT
- Dr. Dawn Rager, associate professor in the Department of Psychology at St. John Fisher College
