Elephants in the News

Posted By on Sun, Jun 11, 2006 at 9:02 AM

Remember several months ago, when the City Council voted to enlarge the Reid Park Zoo elephant enclosure, even though a group of Tucsonans was making some convincing arguments that the elephants could suffer and deteriorate by staying at the Reid Park Zoo?

Well, at the Los Angeles Zoo—where animal-rights folks have made similar arguments—an elephant has died.

You think this will make the Tucson City Council reconsider, seeing as it's yet another bit of painful evidence that elephants need more space than the Reid Park Zoo could ever offer?

Nah. That would make too much sense, ya know ... to do the right thing.
