The Zoo demonstrates increasingly Insane Behavior. They wouldn’t let Lucy Accept a hand made Coat Made for Her to Battle Edmonton’s Brutal Weather.

Lucy’s mom had to cry to give her a drop of waterLucy's mom had to cry to give her a drop of wa ter

Sorry Debi but Edmonton has got to go,they not like any Canadian city, I ‘ve heard of.

1. They’re mean to animals

2. They think only how much they’ll miss her .  Too bad, How sad.

Mental Health treatment will take of their wounded souls.

Yes of course you can help pick the treatment.staff , for example, Gordie Howe.

3. They locked her out of the barn. O.K. They only shut the door  and make her stand in snow past her knees and it was cold.  (I always wondered how my mom thought of the same thing).

Oh Lucy, Dr. Charisma and the world pressers are sending golden thoughts to you.

Lucy is being brave  bu it’s been six years since Bob Barker came  and she is still waiting to see her friends.  So go ahead and cry, baby, cry, and make the zoo a sheet of ice.  Broken legs for Valentine’s  Day to the  loving  Attendants.

“I have a stun gun and I’ll use it on you if you don’t put that cattle prod away, Lucy spoke softly.   No, she said, I believe violence can’t be used to fight violence but equal paybacks, almost sounds like democracy.”`

Lucy’s New Gallery! Should I give up? living in poverty, losing my mental health, crying all the time. No , a voice in the wind “Carry On, They will follow.”

I truly admire your courage following me here.

I cry and cry over Lucy and gorillas, losing their hands and feet, and elephants losing their faces, and stolen young girls losing their parents, their virginity, rhinos their horns and so on.

Old age pension is a picnic with no lunch.

Sooner or later I may have to go elsewhere. No other offers so I stay,

Comrades, groups, elephant lovers, zoo haters, artists competing with animal talent, anti-circus folks, let’s see, oh I love this phrase, let’s do the Math. In 2009 I began my fight for Lucy’s acquittal and five years have flown by, what’s happened?

I bring my empathetic,compassionate followers, tons of researched posts from specialists,from the top qualified people.

A Home is Not A Home without a Newfie Dog

The boys saved 29 men when the ship went down.

The boys saved 22 men when the ship went dow

Norton, Grandpa’s Newfie dog died Grandpa looked destroyed as he cried and cried.
He said he had a whole in his soul
That wouldn’t fill in or let go
After two tear filled days he jumped into his truck
No good by but we wished him good luck
For two days he didn’t come back, no cell phone to call
But when he returned he said it all
There were two black hairy bundles one in each arm
That’s even better than one lucky charm
He came home with Norton 2 and 3
He swore they brought happiness to every family
He said a family ain’t blessed with joy
Unless he’s got a slobbery big Norton boy.
Grandpa made us take an oath that we’d all own
A Norton newfie dog to bless our home
Grandpa’s marine ship set sail in a hazy fog
As it thickened none could see what is soon to be
Except for the courageous Newfie Norton dog

One night the Nortons sleeping, dreaming vividly
Number 2 raised his head listening intently
He heard someone scream silently
Roused waking Norton number 3

Into the water knowing what to do
Floundering arms and legs ,numbering twenty two
Grab, pull with neer a sound
A flash illumination, men dumped in a mound
Loudly barking as they ran  to the station
The police following in lively animation
Laying there barely alive, but safe on the ground
Exhausted Norton Two and Three, True Heroes,None better to be found.
A family ain’t a family without a dog, a Newfie
Bringing joy and happiness, take it from me
Grandpa knew the best way to be
Now we’re up to Norton 53

The boys know; they'd drag a stewed Gramps home but not his  mates. Hey we need our  sleep .

How many Canadians does it take to make an elephant happy?

I have followed the history of Lucy the elephant, who lives as a solitary elephant for over 35 years at the Edmonton Valley Zoo. Bob Barker, an animal activist, who in 2009 and 2013 came to Canada to plea for Lucy’s release to go to a sanctuary. He offered the zoo, $300,000 for the zoo and $100,000 for her transport to go and live with other elephants.The zoo refused.
A letter from the Edmonton zoo, states that they are within the law, as decided by the Supreme court. I don’t think so but please read it for yourself://wp.me/p3LXqX-2m

In 1976 she arrived,as an orphan, bonding with zoo keepers, who declare they are Lucy’s family. The zoo maintains Lucy doesn’t need other elephants; she is a “unique people’s elephant.”No one is challenging the dedication of her keepers, or their care.

Today we see photographs of elephant’s hugging, joy being in the herd.They recognize memories of past ancestors, and live in a strong matriarchal society. A bond with humans, no matter how strong, can be a justification for keeping an intelligent social animal isolated from its own kind, especially in an unnatural climate.

Why does the zoo refuse $400,000, and Lucy’s opportunity to return to be with other elephants after 38 years?

The zoo’s vet said she’s not overweight. Her trunk is clogged but not as bad, have they reduced the number of hours she holds up signs? In a photograph there is a bump in her trunk, just above where she holds the signs. Could this be a work related injury? They haven’t done anything about it.
Lucy?
Why
does

the zoo keep refusing? They could up date the environmental conditions in the zoo per a PETA report.

A Video on (U tube)shows Lucy rocking back and forth in her cell. Supervisor, Dean Treichel, said that Lucy demonstrates “anticipatory behavior while she waits for her herd (keepers) to show up”. The constant companionship of other elephants would spare Lucy the anxiety. Although with the zoos overabundance of money, I think they should hire a night man who could sing and comfort Lucy.

Still $400,000, perhaps Lucy is making extra income, selling paintings. No I only sell 2 or so a year and I’ve painted for over 40 years. Perhaps I should hold up signs in an elephant’s outfit. I believe they are profiteering off of poor Lucy. After 35 years it would be an humanitarian act to let her go; however, it brings to mind the girl whos was held captive and escaped a year ago. She’s much happier.

So many Canadians would like to see Lucy leave but what do they do? Or is it just the usual talk, oh we hate war, kidnapping 270 children, sugar, fat people, not out loud. I can go on.

How many Canadians does it take to fight a zoo and bring happiness to a suffering elephant?

How many Canadians it take to fight a zoo and bring happiness to a suffering elephant?

How sickening. Video shows Lucy rocking back and forth in her cell, depression, mentally stressed. No,this can’t be the Canadian Way?
A bond with humans cannot justify keeping an intelligent social animal isolated from her own kind, especially in an unnatural climate. Supervisor Treichel- “Lucy demonstrates ‘anticipatory behavior’ every night”. Spare Lucy the anxiety. Send her to the elephant sanctuary.

Lucy is so sweet she even curls inspite of the fact that she hates sweeping, she hates the stones made from elephant feet,her feet hurt from the ice, she’s so big she can’t get down to throw the stone unless she falls down, Who thought of this? Lucy? You’ve got to be kidding.

 

When the Vet discovered she didn't have an OHIP card, he said she was an illegal immigrant. The Zoo denying their involvrmrnt said they didn't know her. Even the Mayor said,"that's not our elephant."

The Zoo never told her she would be alone for 36 years. How depressing.
