"WE DO NOT INHERIT THE EARTH FROM OUR ANCESTORS, WE BORROW IT FROM OUR CHILDREN"

Please post this graphic when you see the photo of this baby which is making the rounds as “cute.” An elephant is not genetically programmed to live in snow, nor to spend a life sentence in a zoo, never knowing what it is to be free. People rarely think of the consequences and that elephants should not be in zoos in the first place. Especially in Sweden of all places. Elephants spend months in barns in Northern climates because of inclement weather. Lack of movement leads to foot disease, the most common killer of captive elephants in middle age. More than likely this baby will die early of foot disease from never having been able to exercise its feet and limbs properly.More than likely this baby will be traded away from its family. Separation never happens in herds except the bulls leave as teenagers but still visit.
