Our Zoo Elephants want to go to the PAWS sanctuary

This is a photo of the sanctuary in Chang Mai (www.elephantnaturefoundation.org). Despite her old age, note that this elephant’s face is not indented. Elephants in captivity without the ability to really walk have a different appearance. Go to www.friendsofWPZelephants.com for more information. We are in a time crunch and every call matters. Please contact our Seattle City Council to urge them to put strong pressure on the Zoo to avert their shipment to the Oklahoma zoo. Sally Bagshaw 206 684 8801; Kshama Sawant 206 684 8016; and Tim Burgess 206 684 8806. You can leave a message and it takes 2 seconds. Chai and Bamboo want to live in a warm environment with acres to roam.

    I am very saddened that the 2 elephants in Seattle zoo will not be going to Paws Sanctuary in California. Their reason being that supposedly you have sick elephants? Is this true, or is it only about the money for the zoos to stick together? I signed a petition to have them Not go to yet another zoo, Oklahoma Zoo, but to be in this sanctuary. Why is this not happening? I know that you already welcomed them to live there.
