Today one of the oldest elephants captivated in the the Woodland Park Zoo was killed (a zoo that we as tax payers fund! think Prop 1!)
For more than 10 years, that I can think of, people have been asking the zoo to allow the elephants to be relocated to an elephant sanctuary like this: http://www.elephants.com/
At one time the sanctuary was willing to pay for transportation! The zoo officials declined.
It is time to get the Woodland Park Zoo out of the elephant “business”.
