Circus Literally Surrounds Jackson's Memorial
Hours before Jackson's tribute service at Staples Center, a herd of elephants and horses marched through downtown Los Angeles.
The animals are with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus, which opens Wednesday at Staples Center.
The pre-dawn pachyderm march is a decades-old tradition for the circus.
The 11 Asian elephants and seven horses arrived at the arena about five hours before Jackson's public memorial.
