I really believe that we should treat Elephants like humans. They are as intelligent as an 10 year old child, and smarter than the entire tea party.

Separating two fighting cats is hard enough. Can you imagine two elephants?

FTA The tragic incident sparked a fundraising effort by supporters of the zoo, who hoped to raise enough money for Mila to be relocated to a zoo with that had other African elephants.
The supporters raised $1.5 million, enough for Mila to be moved from New Zealand to San Diego Zoo.



Oh man... that video was so sad :( :( I'm so glad she will be moved.

I thought it was already decided that in any case of an extra animal they should be chopped up and fed to lions.

"You!  You're that SOB that....!"
"RON....eh, cameras...."
"What the fuh...!"
*entwine trunks much to the pleasure of the gathering crowd*

"Big smile..big smile."

The story of Shirley the elephant makes me cry every time I watch it. So glad this elephant is now getting her chance.
