USDA Confiscates another elephant

The Associated Press is reporting tonight that the USDA confiscated "NED" a 21 year old Male Asian elephant from Trainer Lance Ramos in Florida today for failure to comply with the Animal Welfare Act. He is described as underweight and will be transported to the Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwold, Tennessee that is operated by Carol Buckley.

The Elephant Sanctuary has maintained they will not take any males. Now they are saying they will nurse him back to health then find a permanent home for him somewhere else.
