For over 30 years, Lucy has been held captive in a small zoo enclosure in frigid Edmonton, Alberta, and for more than three years, she's been without the companionship of other elephants

Please urge Mayor Stephen Mandel and the Edmonton City Council to do whatever is necessary to get Lucy relocated to a sanctuary and to close the zoo’s elephant exhibit permanently.

Send polite comments to:

The Honourable Stephen Mandel
Mayor of Edmonton

elephants are highly social creatures - a fact which facilitated their taming and use by man. humans really need lessons in gratitude from animals...

Will do and thanks for the post. The animal santuary here is California is just where Lucy should go along with ALL the elephants held in zoos.

Crappy zoos shouldn't be allowed to have elephants (or any other animals, for that matter!)

Thank you, emails continue to be sent to the EDM. City Council.....

......Even Valentines sent to Lucy in care of the EDM City Council did NOT shame them into allowing this magnificent girl to be transferred south......

Do you know how COLD it is in Edmonton right now......V-E-R-Y....this is NO PLACE for her to be!!

The FIGHT continues....please continue to advocate for this fine girl......................

Noted, Cher. I have looked at all the pictures of elephants. Elephants in captivity relly look miserable. Why isn't anything positive done for them? What's the use of keeping them in captivity? I thought living in Canada was great. Not for elephatns, apparently.

Lucy and all the other captive animals animals there should be freed. The zoo keepers can take pictures for a display captioned "Freeded From Our Abuse."
