Packy on Flickr.

The Oreogn Zoo asked Oregonians to pass a bond measure in part to build a elephant sanctuary east of Portland. It passed. What did they do with the money? They expanded the breeding program and refused to build the sanctuary they promised. Now we have no sanctuary, and more elephants, less space. Pathetic. These creatures deserve much better than this.
