SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The circus begins its four-day run Thursday. The show will feature an assortment of daredevil animal and clown acts. But not everyone is happy.

PETA is staging a protest Thursday afternoon, saying baby elephants are tortured by animal trainers. They're also upset about a federal citation that one of the elephants should be pulled from the show.
