Circus elephants escorted into the Staples Center

The King of Pop loved animals and famously owned a pet chimp, Bubbles, but the elephants will not take center stage for Jackson.

The animals are a part of the Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey Circus, which will call the Staples Center home from Wednesday, July 8 to Sunday, July 12.

Bubbles the Chimp is living in retirement in Florida.
