Maggie the Elephant

Maggie the Elephant is getting ready to leave the Alaska Zoo and head down to California to live at an elephant sanctuary. This has caused lot a of ruckus in Alaska regarding a) the ethicality of keeping a desert (read: hot weather) animal in an arctic environment and b) spending such a huge sum of money to transport an animal down to California. The move went forward only after Bob Barker donate $750,000 to care for the elephant in her new home.

ok, "ethicality' probably isn't a word, but it sounds good and I'm pretty sure everyone got its meaning.

  1. I thought about that when I saw her in AK. I think it's a good move for her, and props to Bob Barker for his donation! : )
