Message sent! Thanks Marie!! What is it with these bloody zoos that keep elephants in solitary??? Same as poor Lucy in the Edmonton Zoo. They just can't let them go because they'd lose too much revenue. Disgusting money grubbing jerks. Elephants are social animals. Solitary confinement is ABUSE.

I signed, Thanks Marie! No being should spend their lives alone, especially an elephant who is a social animal. Let her retire with the companionship of other elephants. She paid for having been in a zoo all her life to be spending the rest of her life in company of other elephants & in a sanctuary where her life is comfortable!

I do agree that a zoo keeper should keep and look after Animals, however to sentence them to a death like situation where an animal is sentenced to die along is cruel this mean that the zoo keeper do not have that animals welfare at heart. This elephant should be put with others like her and to be able to die in the company of others who are her pears.

We tend to forget that the days of vocation are over. To assume that teachers love children, that librarians love books, that lawyers love justice, etc., is now just silly. And sadly, so too is to assume that directors of zoos love animals. This is a blazing example of the fact that they don't, for to keep any animal, but especially the most social of animals, in isolation is a form of torture.

Poor Lucky!! She deserves to go to another Zoo with elephants like her, or else send her to a sanctuary where she will have freedom to roam and be around other elephants for the last years in her life!!

San Antonio Zoo should be ashamed of themselves for keeping Lucky in isolation!
