The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus announced on Thursday plans to eliminate all elephant acts by 2018.
According to Mashable, the choice to end the iconic animal numbers is due to growing public concern about the treatment the elephants receive.
Feld Entertainment, the circuses' parent company, said the plan is to phase out the acts over the next three years. Elephants removed from the circus will be taken to Feld's 200-acre Center for Elephant Conservation in Florida to enjoy the rest of their lives.
