I signed with this message; Elephabts are a social animal & should not be in solitaire confinement, this is cruelty to Lucky who is intelligent & lonely! Have a heart & do give Lucky a placement with others of her kind! Thank you! Thanks Teresa, I will forward to my friends.

Signed!! I don't understand why it's taking so long for them to make a decision on lone animal!! It should be a "no-brainer" to move Lucky to a peaceful sanctuary with other elephants. If the zoo can't even make this one easy decision, I can't imagine what's going on with the rest of the animals!!!

done. I don't get it. Like people-animals are social beings and need companionship-not a life of solitude. Lucky has suffered lonliness for far too long already. Time ( long overdo) to do the right thing and move her to sanctuary with other elephants. TY Teresa and Henriette for the fwd
