Free Lucy the Elephant from Lifelong Imprisonment

    1. Petition by

      J (

      Otero County, NM

Dear friends, Lucy is an innocent elephant who's lived her entire life in prison. Currently she is confined - alone - at Edmonton Valley Zoo, in a climate totally unsuitable for elephants. Please ask Edmonton officials to grant Lucy her freedom and a peaceful retirement. For additional information, please visit:

      Zoos are horrible, depressing prisons for animals. I despair when I see an animal so wrongfully caged, especially such a noble and intelligent animal as the elephant. Free this gentle giant, please!

      This is a travesty. This poor, beautiful, innocent creature is lonely, probably scared and is stuck in an environment that is not suitable for her. She needs to be with other elephants, she needs to be taken care of. Sticking her in a barn for a winter, when her normal day in the wild should include walking 30 miles is INSANE! Please Edmonton, please do the right thing by moving this wonderful girl to a sanctuary so that she'll have a shot at living for 30 more years in peace.
