An animal rights organization has been pushing the Topeka Zoo to give-up its two aging elephants and relocate them to a larger, more natural environment. For the past five years, the Lawrence-based group -- Animal Outreach of Kansas -- has been publicly campaigning to send the elephants to an elephant sanctuary in Tennessee. A recent federal inspection found problems with the elephant program, but so far... zoo officials have maintained that the elephants are better-off staying in Topeka. Tonight (TUE), the Topeka City Council is expected to consider the issue and a final decision on the fate of the elephants could come by the end of this month. KPR's J. Schafer spoke to members of the animal rights group... and to the director of the Topeka Zoo to learn more about the controversy.
