Free Lucy the elephant, say protestors

Edmonton Valley Zoo asked to move elephant to warmer climes

About a dozen people demonstrated outside the Valley Zoo in Edmonton on Sunday to demand that a 35-year-old elephant named Lucy be moved to a warmer climate. The elephant suffers from lack of companionship and health problems due to the long winters spent “cooped up indoors,” according to a statement from the members of Zoocheck, Voice for Animals and PETA. They have filed a lawsuit against the city zoo to have Lucy moved south, but the suit has yet to receive approval. The City of Edmonton says Lucy is well cared for.
