Melha Shrine Underway- Animal Activists Protest

The Melha Shrine Circus is back in  West Springfield. 

Animal rights activists protested the  circus Thursday on the opening day of a four-day event. 

The circus tried  not having animals be part of its act for the first time last year, but  returned them to the act this year after officials said it was a  money-losing deal. 

The circus is at the Eastern States Exposition  grounds.
