Send Lucy to PAWS or the Elephant Sanctuary

    1. Petition by

      Kirsten Bohlmann

      Barrie, Canada

This petition is to help raise awareness for the inhumanity that Lucy faces and to ultimately send her to an elephant sanctuary where she can live out the rest of her life in a more comfortable and social environment.

Lucy is a lone elephant living at the Edmonton Valley Zoo

Lucy's current enclosure is less than one acre and she is locked up in a small barn stall for 16 - 17 hrs/day for 7 months of the year.

At PAWS, Lucy would have 80 acres to roam; at The Elephant Sanctuary, she would have over 2000 acres. Both options are FAR better than her current confinement.


Being confined to a small space and unable to socialize with other elephants, Lucy is suffering. In addition, the weather in Canada is less than optimal for elephants.

At PAWS or The Elephant Sanctuary, Lucy would be able to socialize with other elephants.

Please help send Lucy to PAWS or The Elephant Sanctuary by signing this petition and passing the link along to friends and family.

Thank you.

      THESE BARBARIC SCENERIES ARE MONSTERSWORK, NOT HUMANDEGRADING, ABSOLUTELY WRONG & UNACCEPTABLE AND TO BAN IN THE MOMENT! THIS HAS TO STOP IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!

      Pure infantile primitivism - what kind of unhumane monsters are able to handle and destroy LIVING BREATHING CREATURES in that way is unbelievable.

      HAVE YOU ALL LOST YOUR HUMANITY AND BRAIN, FERAL PERSONS RESPONSIBLE??

      People need to vote unacting authorities and officials acting irresponsibly to futuregenerations and living creatures out of occupations ONCE AND FOR ALL!

      DEFORMED UNHUMANE MONSTERS SHOULD SEPARATED AND LOCKED AWAY FROM CIVILIZED CITIZENS FOR DON´T DISTURB THEIR FEELINGS IN A NONHUMANE WAY!

      DEMAND ALL INITIATORS ACTING IRRESPONSIBLY TO PAY REDEMPTION TO FUTUREGENERATIONS !

      MONSTERHUNTERS NEEDED

      IT IS TIME N O W TO DEMAND ALL BRUTALIZERS and KILLERS ONTO A LIST TO CONDEMN THEM TO EXTRACHARGE FOR NGO´S working for FUTUREGENERATIONS!

      HOW CAN HUMANS ARE AS MONSTEROUS AS YOU, PERSONS RESPONSIBLE, LET A LIVING CREATURE IN THIS SITUATION - HOPE YOU EARN THE RESULT AS YOU DESERVES!

      Elephants are social animals. Lucy needs her own kind.
