A demonstration is planned in Danbury by people who want a ban on animal circuses adopted. Animal welfare activists from Redding and Bridgeport are organizing the protest tonight outside City Hall. They protested in April when the Garden Brothers Circus held shows over three day at the Danbury Ice Arena. The facility has new owners who say animal circuses will no longer be held there.  The demonstration is 6 to 7:30pm, leading up to the City Council meeting.  Only two municipalities in Connecticut have a ban on animal circuses. They are Bridgeport and Stamford.
