Syracuse, N.Y. - An animal rights group says the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse is one of the 10 Worst Zoos for Elephants.
"In Defense of Animals", who made the list, singled out the Syracuse zoo’s elephant breeding program as the main reason. It operates “without regard for family or bonded relationships."
This is the fifth time the zoo has made the list.
A spokesperson for the Zoo, said they are “shocked” by the misinformation in IDA’s report and the zoo plans to release a statement in response to the list.
