    Was this to honor the incoming Leo’s. Well done TP. I didn’t think you were THAT clever.

    How sad to see the fence and to hear the sound of trucks and cars…

    According to You Tube, this was filmed in Cincy zoo. I’m not into zoos, but if they’re in it for genuine conservation reasons rather than purely commercial, I’m okay with it, provided the living environment takes precedence and where there is some possibility of returning these animals to the wild in a protected reserve. This is what the Born Free Foundation aspire to. Why are these two full bloodied males together seemingly alone and not in prides?

      I think it speaks volumes about the zoo and, sadly, for most zoos.
      A couple of years ago we tried to have an elephant, “Mona”, taken to an elephant sanctuary in Tennessee as she was elderly, a solitary elephant, and had foot problems. PETA was willing to transport her. She was a wild-caught baby elephant when she came to the U.S. she had been transferred 3 times in her life in captivity.

      Elephants in the wild walk MILES per day and the way their toes grasp the soil keeps their feet generally sound. Mona had lived on two surfaces, her inside home was concrete, and her outside home was solidly pack earth. They are social creatures and Mona was alone. The Zoo wouldn’t give her up. She was euthanized last year.

      I think you’ll find that most zoos are commercial. Elephants are a big draw. The zoo gave Mona a birthday party a few years ago and many people came to see her wear her birthday hat and have her “Cake and ice-cream.” I’m sure she loved it…

        Another sad story, but I sure Mona had good times, she should never have been taken from the wild in the first place. We are lucky here, the well known zoos and wildlife parks are of a very high standard and animal welfare does take precedent, our laws are very tough now and substandard conditions won’t be tolerated by the authorities. Sadly, I’m sure that wasn’t always the case
