Let Lucy the elephant go to an elephant refuge

      Edmonton, Canada

Lucy lives without elephant companionship in a cold climate. Only one veternarian has said that Lucy would die if moved, and he was wrong about an elephant in Alaska so likely he is wrong again. Other veternarians have said she should move. Our mayor and city council have refused to consider a move, and for that, our elephant suffers.

City of Edmonton
Let Lucy the elephant go to an elephant refuge

      All being deserve love, care and compassion. It is beyond unacceptable that in today's society animals continue to be treated like worthless objects. Animals, just like humans, deserve to be protected from torture, abuse and confinement. You would not force a person to endure what an unimaginable number of animals are subjugated to on a daily basis. We need to start appreciating the life around us and remember that all these lives are a part of this world not apart from it.

      The continued disregard for the opinions of elephant experts and outside veterinarians with regards Lucy's wellbeing is irresponsible and bizarre. The interview of Edmonton Zoo's veterinarian on "Elephants on Board: A Journey to Remember" insulted the public's intelligence, and further confirmed the zoo's lack of expertise to provide proper care for Lucy. Her behavior is not that of a healthy, happy and well adjusted elephant. I urge you to make the sensible and compassionate decision by retiring Lucy to a sanctuary where she can receive necessary medical care, and finally have the real elephant happiness that is long overdue

      We need to correct the wrongs that humans have committed on this earth. Elephants are extremely intelligent, sensitive animals. Please help Lucy and send her to spend her last years in better conditions.

      Her bones hurt in the cold just like mine. Let her go to a warmer climate to retire with some of her own kind. Please.
