LISA: 6:44 RIGHT NOW, TO A DEVELOPING STORY, THE RINGLING BROTHERS AND BARNUM BAILEY CIRCUS GETTING RID OF A POPULAR ELEPHANT SHOW BECAUSE OF COMPLAINTS HOW ANIMALS ARE TREATED. MARK: SEVERAL PEOPLE GATHERED YESTERDAY TO PROTEST OUTSIDE OF U.S. BANK ARENA. ALL RIGHT. IN A STATEMENT, THE CEO SAID THE DECISION WAS NOT EASY, BUT IT’S IN THE BEST FROM OF THE ELEPHANTS AND THEIR CUSTOMERS. THE ELEPHANTS WILL BE PHASED OUT IN 2018. LISA: YOU’LL HAVE A CHANCE TO SEE THEM IF YOU GO THERE THIS WEEKEND. ANDREW IS HAVING A LOT OF FUN. GOOD MORNING. [LAUGHTER] WE’RE HERE AT RINGLING BROTHERS BARNUM AND DAILY CIRCUS. HERE WE GO, LET’S TRADE MICS THERE. FANTASTIC. IT’S ME, YES! THESE ARE MEMBERS OF OUR CHINA ACROBATIC TROOPS, WORKING WITH SOME FREE STYLE CHINESE YO-YOS, WE CALL IN THE CIRCUS WORLD A DIABLO. THIS IS ONE OF THE MANY ACTS THEY’RE TRAINED IN AND THEY BEGIN TRAINING IN SHANGHAI AS YOUNG AS TEN YEARS OLD. THESE YO-YOS ARE ONE OF THE THINGS THEIR TROOP IS DOING. HOOP DIVING. 23 YOUNG ACROBATS FROM CHINA BRAND NEW THIS YEAR. YOU HAVE TROOPS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD, RUSSIA, WE HAVE TROOPS FROM CUBA, EVERYWHERE. AND IT’S ONLY AT THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH.
