Three elephants at the Toronto Zoo are going to be relocating from their cold home in Canada to a warm sanctuary in California.

Under pressure from Bob Barker, Zoocheck Canada, and PETA, the zoo had agreed to send the elephants elsewhere, but their idea of a new home was a new zoo. According to PETA, the Toronto City Council sided with activists that the elephants should go to a sanctuary instead. That’s when Barker stepped in again and agreed to pay for their transport.

Olivia Munn tweeted about the decision to bring the elephants to a sanctuary, “VICTORY! Three elephants will live out the rest of their days able to roam acres of natural terrain any time they want.”

Barker said about Performing Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) sanctuary, their soon-to-be new home, “They have a mud hole; elephants love to play in the mud. They have a pool; some of them stay underwater practically the whole summer. And there are elephants for them to socialize with. Elephants come in that have been mistreated and been lonely and depressed, and they just blossom. It’s wonderful to behold.”

PETA is asking that while we celebrate the release of Toka, Thika, and Iringa, we don’t forget about Lucy, the lonely elephant at Edmonton, Alberta’s, Valley Zoo. You can take action and ask that she be sent to a sanctuary too.
