We, as humans, need to protect the sustainable relationship between people and creatures of the earth. Look, Lucy holding up signs, so lonely, her sense of place among her own kind disrespected, painting with her stuffed up trunk around the brush appears to be only sustainable to the zoo. Just look at the relationship of the people of Edmonton and the earth. Even dog owners put boots on their dogs feet in the cold.. Elephants need to be in warm climates with their own kind. They have an instinctive need to be free, wander together, play, not rocking, distressed, alone in a cement cubicle, waiting anxiously for the keepers.
Poor Lucy. Read and pretend you understand the revolutionary insights of scientists, elephant societies, the Canadian people, who are ashamed that you hold your old concepts to be true. Shame on you, Zoo, even Peta told you. You just want to be right, and too many think you are wrong. $400,000 from Bob Barker to stuff into your greedy pockets and you won’t allow this elephant happiness. Is Edmonton really a part of my Canada?
