I hope that I am not posting this in the wrong forum; I am not sure if this is considered political, or not.

 

Please vote in the L.A. Times poll regarding the single elephant that remains at the Los Angeles Zoo.

Elephant experts all agree that elephants should not be kept in captivity. Over an over again, zoos and circuses have been culprits of abuse towards the beautiful creature. In the wild, an elephant walks up to 20 miles a day and roam in herds made up of family members. Elephants are highly social animals!!!

 

Many zoos across the country have closed their elephant exhibits based on pachyderm expert's testimony against confining elephants in small enclosures.

 

Please vote to send this elephant to a sanctuary where he can live out the rest of his life.

I voted to "free Billy" but was sad to see that 56%, so far, are voting in favour of a zoo.

 

As you claim, elephants are highly social creatures, so can you just imagine how lonely that poor beat must be?

Elephants don't belong in Zoos or any kind of captivity, they should be in the wild. But that doesn't seem to be an option in the LA times poll. Of course with poachers, climate change, and habitat encroaching development the "wild" isn't quite what it used to be.

 

Unfortunately some sanctuaries are worse than some zoos. This poll is an example of the lousy choices and misleading questions people are given.

 

The word "sanctuary" sounds wonderful but doesn't tell us which sanctuary and how the elephants are treated and if they are allowed to breed or are castrated, etc.

Sanctuaries do not breed elephants. There is a wonderful elephant sanctuary located in Tennessee that is simply a final place for elephants that have been living a life of confinement and torture in the circus or zoos. They do not allow visitors to the facility and they exceed the requirements that zoos have regarding elephant care.

 

The LA Times Poll has been rigged. Someone has a software program that is adding votes to keep Billy confined at the L.A. Zoo. The Los Angeles Zoo has a terrible history with elephants. Of the 13 who died there since 1975, more than half did not live 20 years, about a third of an elephant's natural lifespan.
