It's been more than four years since the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus called it quits. There was a lot of speculation as to why this cultural institution was ending after more than 146 years of entertaining people from all around the world.
One of the main reasons why the circus came to a close was due to complaints from animal rights groups about the cruel treatment of animals.
But it's now being reported that the circus may be coming back. But this time there will be no acts involving animals at all. The revised circus is scheduled to make its debut sometime in 2023.
