The circus is coming to town and so are the protesters. Members of PETA are staging a rally downtown today ahead of the arrival of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.  

A herd of inflatable "elephants" will lead the protest.  PETA has criticized the iconic circus for abusing it's elephants, documenting their claims on a video expose.  

The demonstration, scheduled for noon, comes on the heels of a complaint that PETA filed with St. Louis Animal Care and Control urging officials to prohibit Ringling from forcing the elephant Siam to perform.

PETA claims that recent veterinary observations indicate that Siam suffers from toenail injuries on both rear feet.  

Foot injuries are the leading cause of euthanasia in captive elephants, and they are often associated with elephants' being continuously chained on hard surfaces.
