Big news came out over the holidays when the ASPCA announced that it would pay Feld Entertainment, owner of the Ringling Bros. circus, almost $10 million to settle a federal lawsuit accusing the ASPCA and others of violating the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.

Feld’s lawyers also publicly released evidence implying HSUS CEO Wayne Pacelle’s involvement, which should add to their concern.
