Alaska Zoo Board Says One Thing, But Stalling Imperils Maggie's Life

Letters / Anchorage Daily News / August 27, 2007

 

When I heard the Alaska Zoo board had voted to release Maggie I thought, "They are just saying that to try to take the focus off of themselves. They'll later come up with all kinds of stall tactics to prevent her from leaving this year."

I was right. However, they have run out of excuses and stalls. Not only have national groups and people from all over the country agreed to donate more than enough money to ship Maggie, some of the sanctuaries have agreed to foot the entire bill. As long as she's moved before winter, her health is not an issue. The crate should be here by now (unless it was never ordered).

This poor elephant will not be alive next spring if she is forced to spend another lonely winter on a concrete-floored cell with no exercise, fresh air, etc.

Sammye Sewell, I guess you won again.  You're going to kill another animal.
