Lota, one of the elephants at the Elephant sanctuary in Tennessee died last month due to complications from a human strain of tuberculosis. Lota had only been at the sanctuary for several months. Only after a long legal battle, was she released by the Hawthorn Corp. to the sanctuary.
Lota, suffered for years, performing for small circuses and other venues. She only had a few months of peace and joy.
I urge all of you to contribute to the Hohenwald Sanctuary in Tennessee and to protest the Hawthorn Corp. treatment of their elephants.
