This all creatures animal exploitation photo gallery about elephants is being presented to show the public the difference between the cute animals we see in advertising and picture in our minds and the reality that exists in the world.
(Elephant Exploitation - Zoo - 02) This is Tinkerbelle, the San Francisco Zoo's Asian elephant. She is also alone in her enclosure, due to the euthanization of her companion within weeks of the death of Lulu's companion. Again, her surroundings are barren and completely mind-numbing, no greenery other than ornamental. A couple of bamboo branches and 2 hanging toys are her enrichment, her only company. Elephants mourn the loss of their companions and loved ones just as we do. ~ Volunteer Journalist: Maureen Adams
