Feld Entertainment, who ended its Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey Circus this year, had said it was no longer going to use its elephants for entertainment, but a permit application shows it loaned at least two of its animals to a zoo, according to an application.
WWSB reports the business revealed the loans to the San Antonio Zoo when it filed to renew a permit for captive breeding and interstate sale of Asian elephants.
Feld also reported two calves died from a herpes virus.
PETA claims the elephants will be moved to White Oak Conservation in north Florida.
When asked about the report, Feld issued a statement: "The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Center for Elephant Conservation is still operating, and elephants are being cared for there."
