Unfortunately, this clip shows nothing. Not the lifting, not even really the apprehension. I wish they had gotten her on tape stuffing the items!
!st, I'm amazed Bob Barker doesn't want to take them out in the wild & turn them loose, like all the other wild-eyed, anti-zoo bunny huggers do.
2nd, All they need to do is keep Connie & Shaba & put them in the new big enclosure they're building. There's gonna be enough room to buy 2 fewer 'new' elephants than now planned then rotate them out/in with Connie & Shaba, every other day, like is already done with several other animals there. RPZ has absolutely NO BUSINESS putting a bull elephant in this zoo...there's nobody here that has experience handling a bull for one & the 1st time 1 goes into musth here, somebody's gonna get hurt/killed - then they'll euthanize the elephant for it! BAD IDEAS ALL AROUND!!
"...locally grown greens..." Ya mean like the volunteer who gave the giraffes the oleander branches that killed one & damn near killed a second one? Yeah...real warm that one was.
What a pantload...the AZA needs to be disbanded & has needed to be for 25 years. They're nothing but a bunch of wildeyed politicos, every bit as much as the HSUS bigwhigs are. Also, this current crop of Reid Park Zoo 'administrators' (everybody higher than Sr Keepers in the hierarchy) need to be dropped headfirst down one of the abandoned mineshafts west of town. It's a damned shame Ivo Poglayan is so old. He was the best thing that ever happened to that zoo as adminstrator from mid 70s to mid or late 80s. I never liked the guy, but it's also too bad Mike FLint took an early retirement package to get out from under-he was the 2nd best thing that ever happened to that zoo! All the BS started when Steve McKusker took over after Ivo retired & Flint jumped ship & has gotten nothing but worse over time. I'm an ex VP of Docents (before the city took them over & ruined that element of the zoo as well) & know well of what I speak!
