Elephants don't forget: appeal coming over Edmonton zoo's pachyderm

EDMONTON - A legal fight over the future of the Edmonton zoo's only elephant isn't over yet.

Last month, a judge dismissed arguments from two animal rights groups that say Lucy is suffering at the zoo and should be moved to an elephant sanctuary in the United States.

But Zoocheck and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have announced they will appeal the ruling.

Their fight to move Lucy is backed by celebrities such as Bob Barker, former host of the game show "The Price is Right," and actor William Shatner.

New hospital for animals at the Valley Zoo

Dr. Ness says Lucy the elephant has always had good health care, but she will benefit more from the facility.

"The facility isn't meant to bring in elephants but along with the facility we've brought in a lot of new equipment which is going to help with Lucy's care, rehabilitation and just maintenance." (amm)

Chapter closes in the aging Storyland Valley Zoo

Facility looks to future that is friendlier to animals

The past 10 years have not been the most pleasant or prosperous times for the Valley Zoo. The plight of Lucy the elephant has generated a hair-whitening onslaught of negative publicity for the zoo and the city.

For much of this time, we've tended to dismiss the critics as loons, especially the famous ones who live in central Toronto and Greater Los Angeles.

Laraque offers Edmonton $100,000 to free Lucy


EDMONTON — Former Oilers tough guy Georges Laraque has offered the City of Edmonton $100,000 if it will move Lucy the elephant to a warm-weather sanctuary.

In a letter to Mayor Stephen Mandel, Laraque said the money could be put toward a downtown arena, upgrading the Indy race track or other projects that need funding.

Appeal in fight over Edmonton zoo's lone elephant Lucy set for February

EDMONTON - A legal fight over the Edmonton zoo's only elephant is resuming early in the new year.

An appeal is to be heard Feb. 2 of a judge's decision last summer to dismiss arguments from two animal rights groups that Lucy should be moved.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and Zoocheck say Lucy is suffering and should be moved to an elephant sanctuary in the United States.

Letter from George Laraque.

Move Lucy before her health gets worse

Last week, I offered Mayor Mandel $100,000 to boost unfunded city projects in exchange for the Valley Zoo's release of the solitary elephant Lucy to a sanctuary in a warmer climate.

For years, Lucy has suffered severe physical and mental distress in the zoo's cold and barren environment. The zoo now claims that Lucy is too ill to move, but has refused to allow any independent veterinarian to evaluate her health and has instead relied, solely, on one industry vet's opinion that she can't be moved because of chronic health conditions

Activist group puts Edmonton zoo on unflattering list

EDMONTON — Edmonton's Valley Zoo has taken second place on an American animal rights organization's list of the 10 worst zoos for elephants.

In Defence of Animals cites the zoos on the list for lack of space, unsuitably cold climates and impoverished social groupings.

The Valley Zoo has come under criticism from a wide range of animal rights activists over living conditions for Lucy.

Lucy the elephant appeal postponed

An elephant-sized court appeal over Lucy the embattled zoo creature has been postponed.

The PETA appeal was scheduled to happen Wednesday after a judge last year dismissed arguments Lucy should be moved.

Controversy over the 35-year-old Asian elephant's fate has been brewing for years.

Children join quest to move Edmonton's Lucy the elephant

But Lucy’s chief veterinarian said the elephant suffers from a unique respiratory ailment that prevents her from travelling and moving Lucy would be detrimental to her health.

Last year, PETA took legal action, claiming the city is violating Alberta’s Animal Protection Act by keeping Lucy in isolation and in an enclosure.

A judge later dismissed arguments Lucy should be moved. In turn, PETA launched an appeal, which was recently postponed.

Still no love for Lucy


For years now, the Valley Zoo and the City of Edmonton have failed to provide any consistent rational account of the condition and treatment of Lucy the elephant.

Her health problems demand expert and fully transparent examination. Zoocheck Canada has offered to negotiate with the zoo to allow a panel of expert veterinarians to review Lucy's many health problems.

Steve-O’s visit to Edmonton will include Lucy pitch

Steve-O: I’m just going to speak up on Lucy’s behalf and see if we can’t get her a better situation than she’s in.... I’m sympathetic to Lucy because I know that elephants in their natural habitat will walk some 30 miles every day. I don’t understand how the zoo’s able to keep her. It seems so black and white. I’ll go there and offer my two cents. I think Lucy should be able to go to a sanctuary.

Edmonton elephant loses weight, too sick to move

A veterinary specialist hired by the city says Lucy has lost some weight and is in better overall physical health.

But the elephant expert also says Lucy still has respiratory problems that would make it too dangerous to move her.

The zoo says it is working with engineers to build a tool that could be used to check the elephant's nasal passages to find out why she can't breathe through her trunk.

Duh .... I wonder if it could have anything to do with the climate she lives in.

If they had put Lucy's needs first and let her go to a sanctuary way back when, her health would be improving, not declining. Too little, too late.

Barker makes another pitch to move Lucy

On Monday ... Diotte talked to Barker for five or ten minutes. He says Barker, the long time animal rights activist who travelled to Edmonton in the fall of 2009 to press for the city to allow Lucy to be moved from Edmonton Valley Zoo to an elephant sanctuary in the U.S., wants another vet to examine the aging elephant.

Diotte told Barker that there's concern that a move south could kill her. But, Barker apparently disagreed.

"Maybe that would be a better fate than being alone and depressed and freezing cold," Barker said, according to Diotte.

QUOTE (Space4Eles @ Mar 11 2011, 04:59 AM)
ý"A veterinary specialist hired by the city" ... "the elephant expert ... ".

Does anyone know who this is?

The expert is Dr. James Oosterhuis.
To quote from 'One Veterinarian’s Search for Truth in the “Lucy the Elephant” Debate':
"He was also the veterinarian on record, when the Hawthorne Circus was found in violation of the animal welfare act, and convicted on 19 counts of elephant abuse. As well, Dr Oosterhuis was the veterinarian who had examined two Hawthorne elephants, and deemed them healthy enough to continue performing only days before they died of tuberculosis."
He is also the veterinarian who convinced the Alaska Zoo to build a $100,000 treadmill for Maggie, which of course she refused to use, and now it's being suggested for Lucy!
( Google the title of this extensive report, if you wish to know more - for some reason the link is huge to post.)

Animal groups ask high court to have elephant Lucy moved from Edmonton zoo

EDMONTON — Animal welfare groups say they are going to the Supreme Court in their fight to have Lucy the elephant moved from the Edmonton zoo.

Zoocheck, along with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, will ask the high court to hear a challenge of an Alberta Appeal Court decision last month.

The lower court threw out their attempt to use the legal system to have Lucy moved from the city-owned zoo to a sanctuary in the United States.

Again the zoo shows Lucy on a lovely summer day. No pictures of the small concrete cell she spends most of her time in. I'm trying to connect with Edmontonians who can go to the Valley Zoo, esp. from November to April to photograph & document her true circumstances. Even in the best weather, she has a small barren yard, and since the last keeper's shift ends at 7:00 p.m., she's locked up for 12 hours, totally without activity or distraction. I can't bring myself to say alone, because essentially she's always alone, having no friend of her own species:

PETA, Zoocheck, appeal Lucy case to Supreme Court

"Chief Justice Catherine Fraser offered a 42-page dissent, stating that the "case should go to trial on the important points of law that potentially impact on both the protection of animals in this province and the public interest in the city’s compliance with the law. The appellants, for the public and on behalf of Lucy, are entitled to their day in court."

She also found that affidavits submitted by the animal rights groups - from an ecologist, an elephant biologist and ethologist, and two veterinarians - are relevant to the case, despite the city's argument that they are not."

Edmonton Valley Zoo Tops In Defense Of Animals’ 2011 “Ten Worst Zoos For Elephants” List

Edmonton Valley Zoo (Alberta, Canada) – Solitary misery. Things couldn’t get much worse for Asian elephant Lucy who is confined all alone in a tiny exhibit, despite the profoundly social nature of elephants. As a result of keeping her in one of the most inhospitable climates imaginable for an elephant, Lucy suffers foot disease – the leading cause of death for elephants in zoos – and a chronic respiratory problem. Despite a lawsuit that may end up in front of the Supreme Court of Canada in 2012 and worldwide calls for Lucy’s release to a natural-habitat sanctuary in a much warmer climate, the Edmonton Zoo selfishly keeps her alone and in distress.

Lucy gets room to exercise in winter, activists aren’t impressed

EDMONTON — Life for Lucy the elephant is a bit better now that she’ll be exercising inside if it’s too cold outdoors, but those fighting to relocate her remain unsatisfied.

The Edmonton Valley Zoo had committed to improving upon the physical spaces available to its elephant before the new year in response to suggestions made by Edmonton’s Humane Society.

Who will speak for Lucy the elephant?

The local humane society won’t enforce the laws that are supposed to protect Lucy. Yet, as the law stands, nobody else is allowed to speak for her or to assert her interests in any formal way....

There’s still time for Canada’s judicial system to right this wrong.... Will the Supreme Court let someone speak for Lucy?
