Circus won't include animals in Honolulu shows

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Organizers bringing a circus to Honolulu say the show will not feature animals as previously planned.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals protested against the Moscow International Circus' plans to include animals during Honolulu shows in October.

Circus spokesman Patrick Bullard says the decision had very little to do with PETA's complaints. He says one of the reasons is the expense of bringing animals to Hawaii.

PETA notes it's been 20 years since a circus elephant ran amok before a Honolulu show, killing a trainer and injuring 13 people. The elephant named Tyke was later shot and killed by police on a Honolulu street.
