From patricia webber on 03/25/2014

I was in Oklahoma last year and personally witnessed one of the elephants left in an outdoor stall on days where the temps were near or more than 100 degrees and the elephant in the stall was unattended, baking in the hot sun in obvious distress, wildly swaying it's head back and forth as if it were going crazy. The elephant didn't even have room to turn around in the outdoor stall and could only shift it's weight from one foot to the other. On none of the occasions that I passed by there at any time did I ever see anyone outside tending to this elephant. These elephants and any other animals in the care of these people should be removed and put on a nature reserve to be properly taken care of and live out the rest of their natural lives. I learned later, the elephant in the outside pen had been denied vet care for over a decade and was beaten with bullhooks as well.
