CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -  Not everyone was thrilled at the opening night of Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus.

Local animal rights activists protested outside of U.S. Bank Arena on Wednesday evening to bring attention to circus animal abuse.

They believe the circus animals like elephants, monkeys, big cats are trained tricks taught by torture, and protest the 26-hour rides in small trucks and trains.
Ringling Brothers officials say they comply with all federal, state and local laws, having very stringent animal care guidelines.
In 40 years of current ownership, Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey has never been found in violation of the Animal Welfare Act.
