Freeing Connecticut's Sole Surviving Elephant in Captivity

October 23, 2019

Yesterday I was honored to stand with State Representative David Michel, State Representative Anne Hughes, Annie Hornish (CT HSUS), Courtney Fern (Nonhuman Rights Project), and Jill Alibrandi to urge the Commorford Zoo to free CT's last surviving elephant in captivity, "Minnie the Elephant."

If I were to control a dog or cat with a bullhook in public, I would expect to be reported, arrested, and charged with animal cruelty. Why we tolerate it with an elephant, I don't know.
