They should be ashamed. Close down the elephant section is what should be done. thx Tracy

Their fury is certainly justified. They should have learned by now that they should send the elephants they have to a sanctuary and not have anymore. Keeping elephants in zoos is a bit like keeping orcas and dolphins in aquaria. They are used to traveling long distances and have little room to really move around

poor elephants. Hope the death was quick and not painful. If sent to a sanctuary wouldn't that still be sort of confined space?
