Woodland Park Zoo: Bigger exhibit would not help elephants

I read with astonishment the letter from Doug Parker of Lynnwood [“Woodland Park Zoo elephants: Provide a bigger area,” Northwest Voices, Aug. 29] suggesting that the elephant problem at Woodland Park Zoo could be solved by “providing a considerably larger habitat” for them that would resemble their natural environment.

If Mr. Parker knew anything at all about these “magnificent animals,” he would know that the entire Woodland Park Zoo area would not be enough. He was right about one thing, though. Elephants are a major attraction, which gets to the nub of the issue: money. Shame on everyone who continues to defend this inhumane situation. The zoo is an embarrassment to the progressive city of Seattle.
