Bowmanville Zoo: will they replace Limba?

2013-12-04 - Bowmanville, Canada.

On Tuesday, as zoo staff mourned, Hackenberger told the Star he couldn’t say whether Limba would be replaced. “At this point I’m dealing exclusively with Limba, so I don’t know. Anyone anywhere in the world, as long as you comply with the laws, can get an elephant. It’s not just Bowmanville Zoo. A private person who has the necessary land can own an elephant.”
