Elephants walk streets of San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- There was a most unusual sight on the streets of San Francisco early Tuesday morning. Eight Asian elephants stepped off the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus train on their way to the Cow Palace in Daly City. The animals are part of a new circus production called "Fully Charged."
Ringling Brothers has been repeatedly hit with accusations that the animals are abused -- a charge they have denied.
Performances of the new show begin Wednesday at the Cow Palace.
