Denmark is buying the country's last remaining circus elephants

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

    I visited the only person with Lovebirds I could find, and got two adults and a baby to handfeed. He had a pair of Eclectus that were in a nest box, and were sitting on 3 eggs, and one that was a single male. They were moulting, and looked pretty bedraggled. But it was HARD not to snatch one up and run! LOL If the headaches stay away, and everything goes well with the Lovebirds, I hope to get an "E" one day. I'm happy to read that they have so much personality; they always seem to be such quiet birds when I see them. I have a lot of learning to do before getting one, though. This seems like an excellent place to learn https://electrus.company.com/

    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
