Truth for Toronto Zoo Elephants

Truth for Toronto Zoo Elephants

How animal rights activists have used the Toronto Zoo Elephants as poster children, a trophy and victory for their movement despite forcibly exposing them to a sanctuary facility which has active tuberculosis, tuberculosis risks within the African herd AND a sanctuary which lied about the presence of TB just to get these elephants at any cost…..there are approximately 450 elephants in captivity in North America – a little over 1% comparatively of the total number of African elephants which were slaughtered by poachers in 2012 alone. How many millions of dollars are wasted campaigning against zoos in the name of 450 animals while anti poaching units are desperate for funding to save wild elephants?
