If the Felds hadn't shut down the circus in 2017, clearly they wouldn't have survived 2020.

"Some of the elephants won't be able to move to the wildlife refuge because of age or medical conditions-one is 74 years old, and another is blind, so they will probably stay behind"

I smell a Pixar movie.

Also that is one of the saddest things I read today.  Take them with the herd.

A blind elephant can do just fine in an open sanctuary.
