Seven Asian elephants linked tail to trunk and marched through Downtown LA early this morning to get the word out about the upcoming Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus show this weekend. Also, the 3-mile walk is the only way to get the elephants from their circus trains at Union Station to the Staples Center venue. The elephants conducted themselves in a dignified manner and gave bleary-eyed early commuters a rare treat.
The show, called Barnum's Funundrum, runs from July 14-18.
