Good for her! At least she seems content, as she's never known anything else...Thanks Cher!

while i am happy she is in good health, i'm saddened she has never and will never know life outside of a zoo.

do whatever you can to strengthen areas of protection in the wild for these amazing beings.

Sad that she has spent so many of her years confined to an enclosure, a zoo. She should have lived in a protected area where she could be free as nature intended.

At least there she'll never have to worry about poachers ...but too bad she has to be captive to be 'safe' .

A shame she has to be captive- but it's helped her live a happy and long life- And I'm sure her keepers love her dearly.
