EDISON -

Nabisco has officially changed its packaging for animal crackers after more than 100 years.

Animal rights organization PETA wrote a letter to the company back in 2016 asking for a redesign.

The box is still the same colors with a similar design, but the animals are not in cages.

The change also comes after the closing of many famous circuses, including the 146-year-old famous Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey.
