Will El Paso Zoo Elephants Stay Or Go?

2007-03-26 - El Paso, United States.

The Asian elephants Juno and Savannah are the reasons why a lot of people visit the El Paso Zoo. The elephants are one of the main attractions but one thats been controversial for the last two years. The last briefing we got in 2006 told us to increase the size of the enclosure to make it a humane enclosure for those elephants, it's going to cost us $15-$20 million, said Rep. Beto ORourke.

El Paso City to consider moving El Paso zoo"s elephants

2007-02-05 - El Paso, United States. David Crowder, El Paso Times

What to do about the El Paso Zoo's two elephants, Savannah and Juno, is back on the City Council's agenda Tuesday. The question is whether the zoo's elephant habitat is so inadequate that the aging elephants would be better off at a sanctuary in Tennessee and whether subjecting them to the journey and the stress would put them in greater danger than they are now, South-West city Rep. Beto O'Rourke said.

Council Waits on Elephants, Changes Cell Tower Rules Scrutiny at the zoo will have to wait another week.

2006-09-05 - El Paso, United States.

All eyes are on the El Paso Zoo after new allegations of elephant abuse surfaced. Last week, we reported on allegations that a long-time zoo employee beat Juno the elephant. This is not the first time Allen Seidon has been connected to animal abuse. He was caught on tape beating Sissy the elephant in 1999. After much heated debate last year, Council voted unanimously to keep the elephants in El Paso, rather than send them to a sanctuary in Tennessee.
