Two elephants surrendered to zoo

Published 08/24/09

A Texas man whose family has circus ties had to give up two Asian elephants, 40-year-old Jewel and 39-year-old Tina. Both were dangerously underweight. Davenport agreed to pay a $3,000 fine, in exchange for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service dropping complaints against him for not having proper purchasing permits for the pair. The two elephants were being transported to an undisclosed zoo.

Born Free USA believes elephants have no place in zoos and that they would be better off released to an elephant sanctuary.

The new dolphins, a male and a female, will be housed in Siegfried and Roy's Secret Garden on the Strip. The permit was granted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Marine Fisheries Service on August 4th. It was opposed by the organizations Born Free USA and The World Society for the Protection of Animals, which cited the previous deaths of two other dolphins at the habitat.
