Lucy, a beautiful Asian elephant, arrived at the Valley Zoo on May 19, 1977. She came to Edmonton from the Pinnewala Orphanage in Sri Lanka. Since there were no records of her birth, it was estimated that she was approximately two years of age -

S & N, thanks, my friend. Lucy has been in "jail" far too long. She needs to be set free to an elephant sanctuary with other elephants. She is lonely, in bad shape, and in the wrong climate for an elephant. Shame on those keeping her in this condition.

signed. Poor Lucy has gone through enough. Interesting how companies will ignore that what they are doing is known by thousands of people, yet they keep on. Are they keeping their fingers crossed that we have the memory NOT of an elephant, but of a gnat.
A flicker of truth, then we go merrily on our way and forget what we were empassioned by?
Let's keep at it, reminding them that we are not going away.

There is no need for these magnificent animals to be in a cage. Let her go to the sanctuary where she will, at least, find and know some of the freedom she should always have had and friends she didn't know were out there. Because colder weather bothers her, she should be sent somewhere warmer where she can live in peace.

Kept like that for their own selfish reasons bless her.It's time animals were referred to as OTHER BEINGS,and it's time people understood that they are not lesser beings ,beneath us,to be used as we wish...but unique,and with their own far advanced instincts and intelligence....man needs to remember what humility is in the presence of such magnificence!!!

What this amounts to is torture for profit. It can be nothing less than torture to keep a social animal locked away from interaction with their own kind. How cruel.

They should allow expert medical examination of this poor elephant and make the results transparent. If declared healthy enough to move, they must release her to a proper sanctuary environment immediately. There is no excuse for this ongoing cruelty. Such a blemish on Edmonton's image. Shame on all involved in the imprisonment of this lonely animal.

This people at the zoo valley are so greedy for the money & the profit and did not allow this poor innocent Lucy to be send to LA, even though Mr. Bob Barker accepted to pay all the xpenditure for Lucy's travel to LA. Imagine this otally helpless Female elephant must have being undergoing sufferings not only physically but mentally also for keeping her all alone in a small barn for the last 35 years. This is a crime what these so called zoo people do to her but no concious or compassion or the brains to understand the sufferings this animal feels day in day out. Please allow the out side expertise to examine this voiceless yet majestic animal. I can say without any hesitation that the so called vet. at the zoo valley is a total no brainer when it comes to knowledge of elephants. He once said in an interview that the Lucy did not like the other elephants. This so called vet is a pathalogical lier to tell such nonsence in regards to an elephant. Elephants always live as a family Specially this LUCY being an Female elephant she would be craving to take care of another small elephants or any other elephants she may come across. This so called vet is not worthy to be a vet under any circumstances in that zoo. First of all this man needs to take some courses in respect of Elephants issues. No wonder the most vicious cunning wicked creatures on the planet earth are happen to be so called 'Humans.
