The Mizpah Shrine Circus performed during the recent weekend at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, drawing in huge crowds — and a few protesters.
A dozen or so protesters stood outside the main entrance to the coliseum before Saturday’s 2 p.m. show. Members of the group held signs that voiced their animal activist opinions and thoughts on the treatment of animals used in the circus performance.
