Bob Barker says he’ll pay for Toronto elephants’ air fare (and spa day)

Former Price Is Right host and long-time animal lover Bob Barker is going to pay to fly the Toronto Zoo’s three elephants to a California sanctuary that, apparently, boasts super-luxe amenities, like therapeutic Jacuzzis (no, really). The elephants’ long, complicated and often controversial story looks like it will finally come to a close—hot tub party anybody? Read the entire story [Globe and Mail] »

    I am so happy to know that the elephants are finding a new home. I hope they enjoy their new digs. Well done Bob Barker!

    If Bob Baker flies them, will there be peanuts on the plane for the elephants?

    Thank God for angels like Mr. Bob Barker. It’s the least we can do for them since we have exploited them all of their lives. I’m sorry it took so long for people to see it. May they live the rest of their lives in pure luxury. Thank you Mr. Barker from the elephants and the people who care.
