Important to keep our circus elephants sane
Former circus elephant killed her keeper
Mila was a former circus elephant who got transferred to The Franklin Zoo in New Zealand on her way to a sanctuary in the US.
Kirsty Johnston at Stuff explains what went wrong the day Mila killed her keeper – perhaps in a moment of insanity.
An expert in animal emotions speculates that she may have suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder causing her to snap.
We must do all we can to make sure nothing similar happens to the Danish circus elephants.
