Lucy liberation

Petition to move ailing elephant presented to Edmonton city council.

“We believe it’s a disgrace that Lucy’s respiratory condition has continued for five years without the cause being properly diagnosed and treated,” said Melissa Murphy, Friends of Lucy spokeswoman, in a news release.

“Valley Zoo administration has continued to rebuff numerous legitimate offers of assistance from other elephant veterinarians,” she said. “We believe this clearly shows that the Valley Zoo is not genuinely interested in Lucy’s long-term health and well-being.”

Murphy said the petition represents just “the tip of the iceberg” and there are thousands more Edmontonians who are concerned about Lucy.
