Over $1 million. That's how much Denmark is spending to buy and retire its last 4 circus elephants.

    That;s wonderful news about the circus, but they need to go to a sanctuary and not a zoo where they might again end up in a small space and away from other elephants.

    I do hope that these elephants will not end like the baby giraffe slaughtered in one of the Danish zoos to be fed to lions while people was watching . https://edition.cnn.com/2014/02/09/world/europe/denmark-zoo-giraffe/index.html?no-st=9999999999

    If it hadn't been for circuses the majority of people wouldnt even be aware of these animals existence let alone care.
