Ringling Bros. circus is folding its tent after 146 years. There last performance was held on Saturday in New-York.
According to owners of the circus, the reason for shutting down is falling ticket sales and growing costs of current expenses.
Low attendance, the owners explain with the fact that the audience tastes have changed. At the same time the circus had been battling with animal rights activists for a long time. All this against the background of high operating costs forced the leaders of the circus to make a decision on the termination of its existence.
The circus was founded in 1884 by seven Ringling brothers. In the international arena, it was once known as "The greatest show on earth."
