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.
