Nicholas and Gypsy Update

Performing Animal Welfare Society PAWScast show

Summary: Nicholas and Gypsy, the last of the Illinois Hawthorn elephants, have been at PAWS for almost one full year, and news of them is long overdue. In this update, Ed Stewart talks about breaking ground on the bull habitat construction at ARK 2000 and the additional requirements of keeping bulls. Gypsy and Nic are doing well and we're delighted that their quarantine period is almost complete. The first anniversary of their arrival at PAWS will be April 1st, 2008. We want to say thanks to all of you who have supported these two very special elephants on their long journey to PAWS. We are especially grateful to Bob Barker, a true friend of animals and without whom, this chapter of Nic and Gypsy's story might well have ended differently.
