That is what needs changing.
The ability for humans to see Animals and Nature as a whole and a part of themselves – a form of bonding with earths living library. Not human supremacy and the death of nature in a quest for more strip malls and apps.
The Supreme Court Of Edmonton refused to hear her case and dismissed it as a waste of their time. Did they dismiss all the Canadian Citizens who Care about her?
Is Lucy the representative of Canadians who aren’t heard, who have no voice, who don’t count?
Who voted for the judges, the board at the Zoo? Very callous and obviously they are not abreast of the changes in zoo care and the planet. Who makes the rules and how can we disagree?
This is not a dictatorship or have I missed something?
Lucy knows she must follow Dumbo, her brother’s lead. Lucy takes the leap
|When Lucy and I heard Dona, Dona, Dona, Dona by Fern Lindzon
The artist sang with such intent thatLucy was determined that she would fly.
“But to those who treasure freedom
|Like the swallow have learned to fly.”|
|Lucy, This is what you have to do.|
|Lucy Do this.|

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.
I know you are intelligent readers and smart or you wouldn’t be here.
So in the words of Lenny Bruce, Help me, Get this Fucking Elephant out of that Fucking Zoo.
2. Edmonton Valley Zoo (Edmonton, Canada)—Can You Hear Me Now? Four times Edmonton Valley Zoo made the list and now we proudly stand as the second worst zoo in the world. Oh Canada
What more can we say about the Edmonton Valley Zoo’s stubborn refusal to do right by Lucy? This profoundly social female Asian elephant has lived alone for thirtysix long years in the zoo’s tiny enclosure, locked away for much of the year due to Alberta’s bitterly cold climate. Neither worldwide furor over Lucy’s cruel confinement, or the sound decisions by two other Canadian zoos to send their elephants to warmer climates, has moved zoo or Edmonton officials to move toward meeting Lucy’s social and physical needs. Lucy suffers from chronic arthritis and foot problems, displays abnormal stereotypic behavior, and is managed with an outdated circus-style method using bullhooks. Further, the zoo refuses to allow an independent veterinarian to examine Lucy, and CAZA—the zoo’s accrediting body—won’t stand up for her. Lucy’s only hope now hinges on whether new city councillors show reason and compassion for her.
The Edmonton Valley Zoo appears for the fourth time on IDA’s list.
