All the Elephants

Elephant Mama and Baby

Elephant Mama and Baby









All the elephants are not in the zoo.
This Mama elephant and Baby, too,
have come to live here on a farm
where they know they are safe from harm.
This farm has a gaggle of geese
that roam about just as they please.
They hold their heads way up high
and honk and honk as they go by.
The geese pay the elephants no mind–
a happier place they never could find.
This little story is really true–
all the elephants are not in the zoo.

    That’s really good to hear, Freeda. Although Auckland zoo and Detroit zoo seem to be very roomy and natural, I like that. Horrible to see animals in confined spaces. I didn’t like the penguin enclosure at Detroit though, all inside and dark.


  2. The elephant in my picture is an older one that lives on a farm with space to move about, although still confined by fences.

    For me, i have never liked the Zoo’s. Years ago i went to the zoo in Fresno, watched the animals in the cages and i thought how sad for these wild animals to have to spend ther entire life caged up. Its good to know there are places where they at least have some space to roam.
