TOPIC: Update on Lucy the Elephant in Edmonton Zoo in Canada
Lucy the Elephant has been at the Edmonton Valley Zoo for 46 years and turns 48 this year. This is an ominous milestone as zoo elephants rarely survive to their mid forties. Lucy suffers from a number of zoo induced ailments which will shorten her life expectancy. She has no other elephant companions, which is considered cruel by elephant experts due to their highly complex social needs. The harsh Edmonton climate is detrimental to her health and painful for her ongoing arthritis and foot disease. Lucy lives in a tiny concrete cell and is only allowed outdoors for short controlled walks.
Success! The City is finally willing to accept the offer by Free the Wild and also LEAP's request to submit a list of recommended consultants. LEAP were pleased that one of their recommended vets was chosen. Release of report is still pending.
