  1. The Elephant Task Force needs to do a lot of soul searching to go beyond the bias inherent with their relationships to the Zoo in order to do what’s right for Bamboo, Chai and Watoto. These three elephants who have lived in a tiny, inadequate display their entire life should not die at Woodland Park Zoo. Sending them to a sanctuary is the humane decision. Let’s hope the Task Force steps up and does the right thing.
