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/

    While this is a good gesture, my wish for these magnificent elephants would be to go to a sanctuary where they can roam in a family group, feel grass under their feet, roll in dirt, play in water and just be elephants!! None of these natural behaviors will be allowed at a zoo!! Please, those in the Danish government, consider a sanctuary as an option instead of a zoo!!! Please!!

    Thank you Denmark, all countries should follow your lead and stop cruelty to animals not only elephants. People stop patronizing the elephant tours in Asia. Enjoy the scenery while strolling, you will do good for your health and for the good of those elephants who were battered to submission at a very young age to cater to your wants. Do your share to care for the wild, let's make it happen.

    The government has to BUY them?! Oh but when it comes to guns in america they plan on just taking them away huh. How about yall use that 1.6 million to stop the amazon fires or to do something to help stop or delay the whole global warming instead of buying out some fucking elephants if you can just take them out with the power of the law, right? 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Instead of a zoo, why not return them to Africa--a non hunting game park would be a great way to spend their remaining years.

    WHY ALL THAT MONEY AFTER TORTURING THOSE ANIMALS FOR YEARS? THAT IS CYNICAL AND CRUEL.
