"Happy" The Bronx Zoo's Forgotten Elephant
Does the Bronx Zoo have the right to keep an intelligent, herd-oriented animal like Happy the Elephant in confinement?
The public truly does not know the condition of Happy today but by all accounts from the reporting done in 2014. Happy spends the majority of her time indoors in solitary confinement in a tiny, unnatural exhibit with no regular access to a larger outdoor exhibit and is forced to endure frigid New York winters- deprived of the social bonds which are critical to elephant welfare. As zoo officials themselves have admitted- it would be inhumane to sustain an exhibit with a single elephant.
It is as if The Bronx zoo is New York City's Guantanamo Bay and now Mayor Deblasio is its warden. New York City praises itself as being one of the greatest cities in the world and it's shameful that for the past few years the, "In Defense of Animals" (IDA), an international animal protection organization has ranked The Bronx Zoo as one of it's top five worst zoo's in the United States and Happy was pointed out as being one of the main reasons for such a poor rating.
Happy became famous in 2006 by passing the self-awareness test. Essentially, Happy looked into a mirror so she was able to see herself. Once she’s become used to the reflection in the mirror, the researchers put a white X on her forehead.
When Happy saw the X in the mirror, she started touching and exploring the mark, this meant she understood that the elephant in the mirror was herself, which means that she has a relatively advanced level of self-awareness. (We humans can’t recognize ourselves in a mirror until we’re 18 to 24 months old.)

China, Wildlife Trafficking Criminals
China's leaders are wildlife trafficking criminals, they wouldn't care if every Elephant and Rhino, got slaughtered as they get paid
The reputable practitioners of China have long shunned the use of rhino and tiger parts as medicinal miracles, but the message is not getting through to the Chinese wildlife trafficking simpletons or China's leadership.
The Chinese people will eat, sniff, shoot and drink anything that stands on four legs (maybe two legs as well) because they are too dim-witted and uneducated to understand that all their myths like "Dog meat warms you' Or "Bull penis gives you an extra boost for that late night rendezvous" is on the same reality level as Leprechauns and the Easter bunny.
For a country that forces its citizens to attend school and has been praised for its teaching ability, they sure graduate a lot of dumb, backward thinking people who still believe voodoo medicine will cure their impotence and the tooth fairy really did leave them that quarter.

Sita The Elephant Departs Far Too Soon
Over 50-Years As An Abused Circus Elephant, Sita Was Only Able To Enjoy 18-Months Of Freedom Before Passing Away
For over 50-years of her life, Sita was a circus elephant slave before being rescued and brought to an Elephant sanctuary. Sita passed away just 18 months after taking her first breath of freedom, leaving the charity that rescued her devastated.
Wildlife SOS was the charity that rescued Sita from a Circus life of appalling neglect after vets warned that she had just weeks to live if she remained in the torturous conditions.
Alongside her sisters Mia and Rhea, she had been shackled for 56 years and forced to perform for circus audiences in Tamil Nadu. The elephants had been underfed, left without water and were found swaying their heads, which among scientist and Veterinarians is a clear sign the animal is under terrible stress.
