story about elephants as
News August 2002
Japanese are going to present
an elephant to a public zoo
in Osieku, Croatia. " Mr.Tajima
made his decision to send two
elephants to a zoo in Croatia
because he heard from staff
who were working to rebuild
the zoo that a popular elephant, "Suzie",
had been transferred to Hungary
to escape the war. Suzie will
not be returned because of
her age. " Mr. Tajima
and his associates have been
collecting thousands of signatures
and donations for 4 years,
and in the near future their
plan is going
to come true. "
newspaper report (7/17 1999):
We have heard
that the zoo in Croatia welcomes
their present, but the Croatian
embassy does not like their idea.
ALIVE feels that the donations
should be spent in another useful
way under Croatian's initiative.
We are also concerned about the welfare of the animals and disagree
with their idea.
Therefore,we would like to ask you to urgently send a letter to our national
authorities concerning the issue of the elephants that may be sent to
Japan from Sri Lanka by the group for presenting elephants to Croatia.
