Elephant Ban In Traveling Shows

A new law, effective in 2018, bans the use of elephants in traveling shows - acts where animals are transported from one location to another and housed in mobile facilities. The rule applies to African and Asian elephants protected under the federal Endangered Species Act of 1973. The law was the first of its kind in the country when Rauner signed it in August. The state of New York followed in October.
