Re: “Bob Barker Pitches in to Help Reid Park Elephants

correction: the name of the elephant that was beaten at the San Diego Zoo was Medundamelli (also called Dunda) and there are several references to it on the net.

Re: “Bob Barker Pitches in to Help Reid Park Elephants

That would be wonderful, if they could live together at the sanctuary. I have been to PAWS and it is a fantastic place for the elephants. The point is that even if they have to stay where they are now, they should do that rather than have to undergo the emotional pain of being torn away from each other. Zoos should not be a place where animals are hurt physically or emotionally. Unfortunately, it seems that there are unfeeling and uncaring people running this zoo and, it seems, the San Diego as well. When the video of keepers tieing up and beating an African elephant named Medundanella, in San Diego, came out some years ago, we should have known what to expect from that zoo and places like it. The zoo was really angry about that video being taken and made public. Keep those elephants together!
