[UPDATED with Pet Industry Lobby Blasts Animal Ban:] Circus Comes to Anaheim City Hall

See Update No. 2 at the end of this post on a pet-industry lobby also having opposed the ban.

See Update No. 1 on the
performing animal ban proposal being pulled.

ORIGINAL POST, SEPT. 25, 9:41 A.M.: In showbiz, timing is everything, which explains why Feld Entertainment is bringing the big guns to tonight's Anaheim City Council meeting. Having presented its Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus to packed Anaheim houses for years, Feld recently inked a five-year deal to continue the streak at the Honda Center--a deal the Virginia-based promoter now fears is threatened by a proposal before the City Council.

Anaheim's Political Circus: PETA-Ringling Bros. war spills into Anaheim council chambers, where a circus-animal ban is proposed

Lorri Galloway, Anaheim Councilwoman, Seeks Exotic Animal Ban; Ringling Bros. Pushes Back

Ringling Bros. Says It'll Put Its Protection of Elephants Up Against PETA's Efforts Any Time

Before the council meeting at 5 p.m. is a proposed ordinance that would essentially ban performing "wild and exotic animals" in Anaheim--a direct hit to "The Greatest Show on Earth" known for its lion, tiger and elephant acts.

Councilwoman Galloway
The proposal was spurred by Councilwoman Lorri Galloway, who said during council member comments on Aug. 23 that she would ask staff to draft the ordinance before the council tonight.

Though she advocated a general ban on performing wild and exotic animals, Galloway made it clear who her intended target was when she said she was "sickened" by evidence she's seen of alleged abuse of elephants.

"I know it's considered part of Americana to have elephants in circuses," Her Honor said that night, "but it's time for change."

That drew cheers from animal activists in the crowd, as they have for years tried to ban circus elephants over allegations of abuse by handlers and general mistreatment by producers. But, unavailable to chime in were actual circus promoters--or, at least, the largest one to operate in the city, Feld/Ringling, which claims it was totally blindsided by the proposal.

And so, among those darkening the council chambers tonight will be Stephen Payne, Feld Entertainment's vice president of Corporate Communications. Having had a chance to read the draft before the council tonight, Payne tells the Weekly it is "telling" that what Galloway first pitched as a general ban on performing animals now specifically targets circuses. 

"The report also correctly points out that this has nothing to do with public safety," writes Payne in an email that points to this passage: "In the 46 years of the Convention Center Arena and the Honda Center's annual circus, we are not aware of any animal incidents related to any member of the public."

That, to Payne, signals the draft ordinance "is clearly an animal rights driven anti-circus bill."

Meanwhile, Galloway report she has been flooded with calls and emails from supporters of her proposal, so you can imagine a highly charged atmosphere tonight in a council chambers that has been the sight of more fireworks recently than nearby Disneyland's nighttime show thanks to outrage over Anaheim Police brutality and wrongful shooting claims.

Yep, you don't need a ticket, a big top or, heck, even elephants standing on their heads to attend a circus in Anaheim these days. Ringmaster/Mayor Tom Tait is scheduled to bang his gavel at 5 p.m. at 200 S. Anaheim Blvd.

UPDATE NO. 1, SEPT. 25, 6:38 P.M.: With "sadness," and after consultation with animal-rights organizations that had clued Lorri Galloway into abuse allegations swirling around circuses, the councilwoman this evening pulled her proposed ban on performing wild and exotic animals within city limits.

Galloway said the issue required more study, but she invited dozens of animal activists and ban supporters in attendance to share their views with the council about the proposal and circus animals. Representatives from Feld Entertainment, the Honda Center and the Teamsters union were there to defend Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus' annual Anaheim shows.

 "We're ecstatic," reacted Stephen Payne, a Feld Entertainment vice president who attended along with a Ringling Bros. veterinarian who cares for performing lions, tigers and elephants.

Payne accused some critics of airing unsubstantiated claims about Ringling Bros.'s treatment of animals, while adding he believes the Feld forces were able to convince at least some people that the way the company operates runs counter to the opposition's allegations.

"We are happy to have the opportunity to bring 'The Greatest Show on Earth' back to the Honda Center every year," said Payne, pointing to the five-year deal Ringling Bros. recently inked with the arena next to the 57 freeway. "The two weeks in Anaheim are such a central part of our Southern California engagement."

UPDATE NO. 2, SEPT. 27, 4:27 P.M.: Before Lorri Galloway pulled her proposed ban on performing animals before the Anaheim City Council, the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council (PIJAC) had advised "retailers, breeders and pet owners" to speak out against the measure.

"The proposal exempts reptile shows held at Anaheim Convention Center, veterinarians who treat exotic animals, and public zoos and aquariums accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums," warned the PIJAC, which urged its members to contact Anaheim council folk.

"PIJAC supports reasonable regulation of animals that may pose a threat to public health or safety but does not believe absolute bans are sound public policy," the lobbyists explained. "Furthermore, such bans drive business underground, thereby depriving the government of effective regulation."

After the further study Galloway seeks, she could bring the proposal back before the council. The PIJAC warned of a possible Oct. 9 return. But such a law would require approvals at two public meetings--and meeting dates are numbered for Galloway, who is termed out in November. Of course, there are always voter initiatives . . .

"Wildlife groups have pushed for greater protections on African and Asian elephants, whose tusks have been harvested for centuries, but for poachers the massive, endangered beasts remain a source of riches, with most sales heading east to Japan and increasingly affluent China.

Between 2002 and 2006 it was estimated that four out of every 10 dead elephants was killed by a poacher. That number has now doubled — eight out of 10 dead elephants are now believed to be the victims of poachers, who have become increasingly brazen despite international efforts to stem the trade."  http://www.wbobradio.com/tag/elephant/

 

If PETA and Co. have their way there will be no more elephants and no more Ringling to try to preserve them. Ringling devotes enormous resources to the breeding and care of these magnificent animals. Those who don't wish to perform also have a wonderful home for life in their beautifully suited, safe surroundings with constant expert attention from those who are devoted to them. These are trumped up allegations by perverse Animal Rights instigators who mislead and incite the public to join in crude harassment of audience members and circus employees.

 

Please, LA, stand strong.  Refuse to allow these deceptive groups who push the bizarre Animal Rights doctrine to continue to abuse Ringling and everyone who supports them.  They sap the energy of our citizens and local governments creating endless, needless chaos, spreading malicious ill will in their incredulous attempt to disrupt and destroy. 

 

The animal lovers of the country, the world, and our future generations are depending on you not to allow these instigators to thwart the efforts of Ringling to preserve an endangered species as they provide our children and families across the nation with greatly loved entertainment.

What a bunch of boobs trying to stir up hysteria over TB and elephants. There are lots of diseases found in lots of animals, including humans. They are controlled as TB is in elephants through lots of attention and care. Hip Hip Hooray the awful bill was dropped. Man and animals have enjoyed wonderful relationships for 1,000's of years. The development of these relationships and the interactions between man and animals brings tears of joy to my eyes. It is such a shame that there are these whackos that would see this end.

It's not only outrageous, it's unethical! Ringling's animals are beaten and chained into submission by their abusive handlers. God forbid if one escapes ard runs away from the abuse because then they will be shot on grounds of being a threat to the community and the general public. However, the public is already at risk, when the circus rolls into town, due to elphants that carry the TB virus. Make no mistake, the facts about Ringling and their numerous violations are inexcusable. Why would any city or town welcome and promote an organization that has such disregard for life (human and animal) and the law.

We finally have peace in Anaheim and now Council member Lorri Galloway and Joan Sosa want more protests?! This is why I prefer term limits - 4 years for council members and Mayor and that's itI I appreciated Lorri's first four years very much but I do not agree with her anti-business agenda in her second term. Lorri and Joan should focus on the Eastside Renewal Project, eliminate gangmembers and stop this PETA nonsense. Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is a licensed business providing wholesome entertainment and luxurious life to intelligent animals who otherwise must fight to exist within a predatory environment in the wild. Where are donations for the Eli Home going to come from if businesses are constantly under attack? I am very saddened by the ungrateful people who expect help and then turn on the ones who help them. It really upsets me that the Eli Home and thrift store may end up closing due to the ungrateful actions of everyone involved. James Robert Reade
