Circus elephants host brunch to help food bank

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus held a brunch with their elephants Thursday.

The elephants, Duchess and Patty, had vegetarian poboys.  The event was to help the Baton Rouge Food Bank.

"It's great that we can team up with the Food Bank. And, you know, create this wonderful event where the kids brought food to share for people that are less fortunate," said circus celebrity Dean.  "So it's really awesome that we could do this today."

The circus opened Thursday night and runs through Sunday at the Baton Rouge River Center.
