    It would be wonderful if they stopped supporting the slaughter of Pilot whales and dolphins by the Faroese while they are at it!!!!

    I hope they could enjoy the best of life in their retiring years. Wild and free and just be elephants!

    Mais autorise et encourage la tradition : le massacre de centaines de globycephales tous les ans.

    How about just seizing them and say fuck you to the circuses

    I’m confused why they aren’t going to a sanctuary instead of a zoo??

    The elephant sanctuary is in the USA state TN. I wonder if they will be going there.

    Good move👌👌. Why must people be entertained by the suffering of other creatures?
