A female Asian elephant calf was born Friday, November 30th at the Oregon Zoo in Portland- and she will become the legal property of a private company, Have Trunk Will Travel, of Perris, Calif., which assumes ownership of the newborn within a month.

Obviously where many zoos are concerned the World Zoo and Aquarium Conservation Strategy is not worth the paper it is written on.

There has been so much objection to sending this baby away to her "owner" that the Oregon Zoo now says she will live the rest of her life there, rather than becoming "animal talent" at Have Trunk Will Travel. At least she will be with her mother and other elephants Signed, because the zoo needs to understand that the public won't forget. And we will raise the issue again with the next poor elephant they try to send away.

Here's an update on future conditions for elephants at this zoo, "Metro Approves Oregon Zoo Request for Additional Funding, Land Purchase":

http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2012/12/metro_approves_oregon_zoo_requ.html

I have never been to the Oregon Zoo. Childhood memories of awful conditions in zoos made me never want to go to another one. Nevertheless 240 acres is a better range for the elephants than the current 1.5 acres.

And I would add that if the Oregon Zoo tries to use their larger elephant acreage to increase their dealings with the Have Trunk Will Travel operation, they will encounter LOTS of protest.

If elephants are struggling to have babies in captivity, then read the signs! They clearly are not getting the proper care they need for the young to live.
