I guess the competition from the Trump was just too much

After 146 years the Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey Circus is shutting down, the last performance will be 21 May 2017.

The demise of the circus is a sad story, two years after prevailing against vexatious lawsuits brought by animal rights organizations over their use and alleged abuse of Asian elephants, Ringling Bros voluntarily pulled the elephants from the circus and attendance plummeted, it was the end of an era. 

I saw the circus as a kid, just curious how many others of you out there can say the same?
