Silverstone, Barker Unite To Get Elephants Out Of Los Angeles

Yesterday, we told you about art-painting elephants in Indonesia and Thailand selling their work to help benefit protection and habitat for those still in the wild. Today, word comes that Alicia Silverston, Bob Barker, Robert Culp and Esai Morales have all joined LA Councilman Tony Cardenas in an effort to move elephants from the Los Angeles Zoo to a massive sanctuary where they can roam free.

The initiative comes as the zoo is about 1/3 complete on the construction of a new 3 1/2 acre $39 million elephant exhibit. About 11 of the pachyderms would be kept in the enclosure. Cardenas says, however, that that isn’t good enough — and a 60-acre sanctuary in the northern San Fernando Valley would be a better use of the remaining funds.

“A sanctuary would cost $10 million,” he said. “The unfinished elephant habitat at the zoo could be turned over to giraffes, saving the city $20 million.”

Sounds good to me — but something tells me the zoo isn’t interested in relocating a money-generating attraction out to San Fernando Valley. I guess we’ll find out more on November 6th when the proposal is considered.

While I’m a huge sucker for the sweet stuff, I can’t escape the seasonal dread of seeing lovers carelessly link up gestures of romance with animal exploitation.
