Steve-O, We Love You!

Steve-O, our favorite vegan comedian and daredevil, led a PETA protest outside the Edmonton Valley Zoo to call on zoo officials to allow Lucy—the ailing and lonely elephant at the zoo—to retire to an elephant sanctuary. “I’m sympathetic to Lucy because I know that elephants in their natural habitat will walk some 30 miles every day,” Steve-O says. “I don’t understand how the zoo’s able to keep her. It seems so black and white.”

As Steve-O notes, elephants need to walk around and move freely. Edmonton’s frigid winters mean that Lucy spends months on end inside a barn. Is it any wonder she’s suffering from arthritis, chronic foot problems, and an undiagnosed respiratory ailment? Lucy—who has been in the zoo for more than 30 years—is depressed and needs the company of other elephants and room to move around.

Please join Steve-O in appealing to zoo officials to allow Lucy to retire to a sanctuary.

Just keepin’ it real,
Sunny

    It’s also so messed up how zoos are perceived as cheerful, happy places in movies,etc. If only they could show them from the animal’s point of view. All they are are prisons. What have these animals done do deserve this? What crime did they commit? Not even the best of zoos could ever fully meet an animal’s needs.

    My boyfriend doesn't believe Steve-O is a vegan. But he doesn't believe much.

    It makes me sad that animals have to go through this sort of thing just for people’s amusement.

    You want to see an elephant? Go watch the discovery channel or book a flight to Africa. Don’t make animals like Lucy suffer because you think it’s “cool” and “fun” to watch caged animals.

I feel like I should've been a teen in the 60’s-70’s. I have rainbow gauges in my ears. I’m FTM transgender but only identify as a gay male. I will write to anybody! I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites.

What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.
