Encounter Africa in Colorado Springs

Elephants need a new pad

The half-century old elephant barn at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is being demolished. The elephants, in the next phase of the zoo's Encounter Africa project, will reappear in spacious modern quarters.  Good going, Zoo!  The zoo has always been exemplary - more so in that it receives no public funds, yet manages to raise enough to provide quality habitats and programs such as black-footed ferret breeding.

Ha leave out one word!!!! I read the post and left out the word "barn" when I read it for some reason. Just missed it. Changes the entire meaning of the story. I thought they were going to kill the old elephant to downsize. haha
