She is not so Lucky like the name they gave her, she needs to be in a place where she can be with others like herself!

Signed...They should see her suffering there
If we know what's best for the elephant,why don't they?
and if they do know,which I'm sure they do, then they are just being selfish and inhumane to a lonely soul

Let this beautiful elephant go to a sanctuary, where she can form relationships with other elephants and can experience life as an elephant should. She needs room to roam and to be part of a group. Do what is right for this gorgeous elephant, who deserves a new life in a sanctuary.

There is far too much evidence now to prove that keeping an elephant isolated and in an unnatural environment causes them extreme distress and mental anguish, not to mention injuries and infections. Elephants just simply do not belong in zoos and other forced containment facilities. Please send Lucky to a sanctuary where she can retire and spend the rest of her days with other elephants in a more natural environment.

i feel for all these elephants in circuses ivory kills the babies i wish i could be a large part in saving them from such dismal acts and outlooks these majestic creatures hurt no one instinct to live large docile and family oriented the gentle giants so why must man be so evil and why do we breed such evil the animals on Earth do no wrong to deserve the acts of mankind. We need to focus on the badness and evil ways of man if this is what they do to innocent animals then what to their own kind fellow man?
