ABOUT TANIA:

Tania is a 37-year-old elephant suffering a life of solitary confinement in a 90 square meter area at the Targu-Mures Zoo in Romania. She was transferred from an Italian zoo in September 2012. At a young age she was sent to a zoo in France where she appears to have lived for more than 20 years. She is confined alone showing signs of distress due to not having enough space. She is confined with no adequate habitat to fit her needs. It is appalling by the amount of space provided to her. Tania has no where near the amount of space needed whether she is inside or outside, the place is too small for ANY elephant. Even 10,000 sq ft. is not enough for an elephant. Please read the sample letter for the remaining information on her.

To Whom It May Concern:

I'm sure you have heard of Tania by now but she is a 37-year-old elephant suffering a life of solitary confinement in a 90 square meter area at the Targu-Mures Zoo in Romania. She was transferred from an Italian zoo in September 2012. At a young age she was sent to a zoo in France where she appears to have lived for more than 20 years. She is confined alone showing signs of distress due to not having enough space. She is confined with no adequate habitat to fit her needs. It is appalling by the amount of space provided to her. Tania has no where near the amount of space needed whether she is inside or outside, the place is too small for ANY elephant.

Our request is that you please rescue Tania and transport her to your sanctuary or help to find one fit for her. Thank you so much.

Yours faithfully,

SAMPLE LETTER:

To Whom It May Concern:

Tania is an Asian elephant at the Trgu Mures Zoo she is distressed and confined to only 90 sq ft with no adequate habitat to fit her needs. Tania has nowhere near the amount of space needed whether she is inside or outside, the place is too small for any elephant. Even 10,000 sq ft. is not enough for her.

Due to extreme cold winters in Romania Tania is cooped up for six months at a time. This adds to the deterioration of her feet. No vet can correct this as long as she cannot move & will kill her.

Tania's insecure fencing is also a concern. If electrified it could kill her and if not she could easily bolt out and the public could be in great danger. If they are unable to provide the proper security for her it could result in her being chained and leading to mental anguish.

Signs of Tania’s distress by swaying and bobbing can be seen in these videos:

This link is to give you an idea of the habitat size required for an animal this large: http://www.elephantpepper.org/downloads/Concept%20of%20home%20range.pdf

I ask that Tania be given the life every elephant deserves, one of freedom. As you are aware, thousands of people are horrified at her treatment, and even though new, they are inadequate facilities for Tania. I ask the authorities in control of her be made to let advocates transfer her to a sanctuary.

Yours faithfully,
