Bijlee has passed... She passed away in her sleep at 05:58am on June 30th 2013. This elephant who captured the hearts of supporters around the world will be remembered fondly. She proved, once again, as many other elephants have, keeping a captive elephant under those conditions (overwork, unhealthy food, lack of basic medical care, etc) is UNACCEPTABLE. I just hope her lesson does not fall on deaf ears. Rest in Peace.
Thank you to Animals Matter to Me, the veterinarians, and staff involved in helping Bijlee through her last days. Photo credit: AMM
