I'm embarrassed to be a Canadian under these circumstances of what happened here in Toronto Ontario with Toka, Thika and Iringa ... The Toronto Zoo should never had put up a fuss, and let the Elephants go to the Sanctuary. Thank god, we've got people in the world like Bob Barker... THANKS BOB

Thank you Bob Barker, you saved them from the horror they'd been living in. Hopefully soon, all those places will be closed down and no more circuses with animals either. It's just got to stop.
