Cole Brothers Circus of the Stars, whose organization recently settled in a lawsuit with an animal right’s group over alleged animal welfare violations, will host a circus event in the city of Slidell Oct. 17-18.
Florida based Cole Bros. Circus Inc. was given a court order to pay $15,000, made payable through the United States Treasurer on or before Dec. 31, after the circus settled a suit filed by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or better known as PETA.
