Elephant Protests

Written by Mike Turner on May 8, 2014

Protesters lined up outside Metro Headquarters then went inside to complain about the lack of care for elephants at the Oregon Zoo.

Courtney Scott of Free the Oregon Zoo Elephants says Metro has failed to provide the promised off-site sanctuary and has instead has spent much more than planned on the
on-site exhibit that is 39 million over the original budget.

Scott says aging elephants like Packy need a sanctuary that provides a small taste of freedom instead of the “front yard” they now have at the Oregon Zoo.
