"Delivery of Queenie to the San Antonio Zoo would subject her to unreasonable danger and hardship, given the alternative available. In fact, it is our opinion that adding Queenie to the zoo exhibit currently holding the lone elephant Lucky is tantamount to acknowledging complete indifference to the welfare of both animals, which it is the obligation of your agency to oversee."
"As you are well aware, thousands of concerned citizens around the country have communicated with your office to express their concern for Queenie’s welfare; they have frequently been assured that the USDA has that welfare at heart. This decision will be viewed by many as the betrayal of those assurances and an indication that your agency is abrogating its responsibilities with respect to the welfare of captive elephants in this country." Please keep up the good work, Queenie & Lucky are counting on us!
Please write, post, picket, boycott, talk, blog, email, & fax urging all to do all they can to obtain the release of Queenie & Lucky from the San Antonio Zoo and into a suitable sanctuary.
Please sign the Petition to free Lucky and Queenie!
I believe myself to be a diversely intelligent (and sometimes talented) woman. A loving and caring mother and friend whom may strive to be just a lil more than merely average. I am as compassionate as I am dispassionate. People have described me as being both modest and humble in many respects. I believe that it is OUR responsibility to protect and maintain, we should never feel that "passing the buck" is good enogh. "If not US then whom?"...
