The Alaska Zoo announced that it will send Maggie, a 27-year-old African elephant, to the Performing Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) sanctuary in California! Maggie has lived in frigid Alaska in a small exhibit with a concrete enclosure since 1983 and has been alone since elephant Annabelle died in 1997. Earlier this year, Maggie collapsed twice and needed assistance in standing – a sure sign that inadequate conditions were affecting her health. PETA and concerned citizens around the world have been urging the zoo for years to send Maggie to a sanctuary. Soon Maggie will have room to roam, swim, forage, and socialize with other elephants.
