City says no thanks to traveling circus

April 15 meeting

The city used its relatively new and strict circus policy to tell a Florida company to keep its elephant, monkeys, kangaroos and ponies out of the Minneapolis Convention Center.

Piccadilly Circus had been working on a deal for a May 14–15 show, but Minneapolis Animal Care and Control on April 4 denied the company’s application for a permit.

The City Council denied an appeal by the circus on April 15.
