Portland - Speak Up For Elephants! video to share

Share this video far and wide so we can have a massive turnout at the zoo this Saturday, Dec. 15, noon to 2pm. And tune in to A Growing Concern this Friday, Dec. 14, CH 11, 7pm for a discussion about the plight of the elephants at the zoo.

IDA and Real Friends of Packy and the Animals of the Oregon Zoo invite you to come to the zoo this Saturday and show your support for the zoo's long-suffering elephants. We paid for a preserve in the 2008 bond measure. Now we find out from a recent Willamette Week article that the plan for the preserve is not a retiremnt home for the elephants but a breeding ground: http//www.wweek.com/portland/article-20023-tusk_but_verify.html

The only humane thing is to release the elephants to sanctuary, before they suffer any more physical and emotional damage.
