What was once a staple of the circus will soon be going away.

FOX News Radio's Eben Brown explains from Miami.

Elephants have always captured our attention at Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, but they're ending elephant shows come 2018 -- after a 145 years.  

The circus says it's due to increasing concerns from the public over how the animals are treated.  

Ringling operates a major elephant conservation facility in Florida.
