No zoo enclosure will ever be large enough for these majestic creatures so LA might as well stop building. Billy needs to be sent to PAWS. I can not stress enough that elephants are not here for our entertainment. Thank you Mr. Culp for your heroic efforts. I pray that you succeed.

PAWS is subject to far less rigorous scrutiny and accreditation standards than the zoo. PAWS has a far smaller animal care and veterinary staff. PAWS would house Billy alone, as they do not allow breeding. The zoo is building a large habitat for Billy and planning to bring in a few females.
To quote Jane Goodall in a recent interview when asked about zoos, the wild is a brutal place for many creatures, whereas good zoos provide spacious habitats, healthy food, and 24-hr. veterinary care. "I know where I'd rather be," Goodall said, and I concur.
