Denver Needs (to Imprison) More Elephants

Video update of construction at Denver Zoo's Duck Pond

Let's face it, a metro area of our size has got to have more than two imprisoned (zoo) elephants. The Denver Zoo currently houses only Mimi and Dolly, and they are getting tired of each other after all of these years.

Bring on the Bulls

So Denver is in the process of building an “Asian Tropics” exhibit and will spend $50 million to greatly expand the capacity to “house” elephants – as many as 12 – on this two acre site.

Read all about it here and here.

P.S. I wonder if Duck Pond will get a new rubber bottom, as Grasmere Lake in Washington Park did a few years ago, to keep the plutonium-laced water from "leaking" into the ground water.
