Joining the Circus
Again this year, during the week of March 9th, SCPC's parking lot played host to the Ringling Brothers' circus animals. Despite the inconvenience to our researchers, who aren't able to park at our door for the week, and traffic snarls caused by tiny tots being maneuvered across the streets at showtimes, the staff enjoys taking peeks outside to see which animals we have a good view of each time around. This year was a particularly good one for elephants!
We were in close proximity to some tigers, too, but it was hard to get a clear view through the fence and cages...
But the circus has moved on, and things are getting back to normal.
