HUGO, Okla. (KXII) -- A Hugo-based circus has now proclaimed itself "exotic animal free".

According to animal rights activist group PETA, the new owner of the Kelly Miller Circus, James Kendrick Judkins, has confirmed there will be no exotic animal acts in the circus going forward.

The group says under previous ownership, electric prods and bullhooks were used to corral animals.
