#1. ELEPHANTS DON'T BELONG IN ZOO'S.
The Audubon Zoo keeps two Elephants, Jean arrived in 1978 and Panya in 1980. Not only are these Magnificent Giants held Captive, They are also made to Perform a Circus Act. Complete with Bull hooks! This is Cruelty and Abuse. These are wild animals, not performers.
For the sake of elephants in captivity, zoos must phase out their elephant exhibits, abandon breeding programs, and strive to provide the elephants who are currently in captivity with a more humane existence.
The vast majority of elephants now in zoos were taken from their homes and families in the wild.
Zoos rob elephants of their most basic needs, including extended social relationships and the opportunity to walk long distances. Lack of exercise and long hours standing on hard surfaces are major contributors to foot problems and arthritis, the leading reasons why captive elephants are euthanized. Many die decades short of their expected lifespan.
WE URGE THE AUDUBON ZOO TO RELEASE THEIR ELEPHANTS TO A REPUTABLE ELEPHANT SANCTUARY SUCH AS TES..... (TENNESSEE ELEPHANT SANCTUARY)
ZOO'S ARE A THING OF THE PAST.
PLEASE SIGN AND SHARE TO GET THE WORD OUT! NO MORE ZOO'S!
Thank you Very much..
