Lucy and Samantha

Lucy, an Asian elephant, and Samantha, an African elephant, live at the Edmonton Valley Zoo. Lucy suffers from arthritis and chronic foot infections. Samantha severed her trunk on a gate latch and lost 20 cm (7.9 in) of it. The Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald, Tennessee, has agreed to take them both. A letter writing campaign and petition are ongoing.[1]

Additionally, Zoocheck Canada launched a Kids Save Lucy campaign in June 2009 to help Lucy. [2][3]
