Hippo return

Telus sells new network with Hazina, last seen in a Christmas 2005 campaign.

Shortly after its launch, the B.C. zoo, where Hazina lived and still lives today, faced cruelty to animal charges.

The charges were laid over allegations that Hazina was kept alone in a shed with a pool so shallow she couldn’t float, causing strain on her legs and joints.

At the time Telus paid $10,000 to the zoo for Hazina’s new enclosure, and helped establish a fundraising campaign. Hochrein said Telus is currently arranging a second $10,000 donation, and Telus followed up with the zoo to ensure her standard of living was up to par prior to launching the campaign.

Today Hazina is happy, and even has a boyfriend, said AJ Gratton, media relations, Telus.
