As Ringling Bros. prepares to take its final bow before a sold-out crowd at Nassau Coliseum in the suburbs of New York City, circus performers and enthusiasts lamented the shutting down of "The Greatest Show onEarth".

"Removing the elephants from the touring units, we saw a very sharp drop in attendance", Field Entertainment's Chief Operating Officer Juliette Feld said.

A circus spokesman says homes have been found for the animals that were owned by Ringling, including the tigers, horses and camels.
The decision to end the circus tours was made as a result of high costs coupled with a decline in ticket sales, making the circus an unsustainable business for the company. The Feld family bought the Ringling circus in 1967.
He said every circus has used Ringling Brothers as its compass and inspiration. "PETA is urging everyone to build on this momentum by never buying a ticket to any circus or amusement park that still uses live animals".
Over the years, animal rights activists had targeted Ringling, saying that forcing animals to perform and transporting them around the country amounted to abuse.
