Cole Bros. Circus folds its tent for the very last time

Born out of Cole Bros. Circus protests in 2012, Humane Long Island vowed never to stop until Cole Bros. was shut down. Four years, hundreds of protests, and multiple venue cancellations later, Cole Bros. Circus is going out of business. 

Although the tigers, elephants, and other animals used by Cole Bros. continue to tour with other circuses, it has become clear that animal entertainment is a dying industry.

Humane Long Island extends our sincere thanks to town of Islip resident Anita Cafferty, West Deptford resident Joan Conn, and PETA for all their help achieving this monumental victory.
