Rosie the former circus elephant is a gentle creature who suffers from chronic arthritis because of an old injury. Now, well-meaning but misguided ex-performers want to bring her to live out her days in a tiny pen with inadequate conditions.

While I agree that she should be in a warmer climate (I live in Maine) where she can enjoy the outdoors year round, this story is a misrepresentation of the actual circumstances. She would not be cold, as the people who would be caring for her will be keeping her area heated, and she also would only be alone initially, as these same people have every intention of adopting another elephant to be her companion. Again, I still think she should be in a climate more like her natural one, but please be fair when telling the story.

"well-meaning but misguided ex-performers" - as they are also 'ex-performers', just like Rosie, I'm not too sure that she won't be in a bearable place; they should know better than anyone else what she's used to and will ensure she is adequately cared for? Has she ever had the privilege of experiencing the 'outdoors'? At her age she deserves rest and peace, wherever that might be found, in a climate she is used to, whether that in any way resembles her 'natural habitat' or not.
