The Plight of an Elephant Named Jenny - Page 2
Soon after they opened to the public my family and I had to go for a visit. It really was an amazing experience. Jenny the elephant is no longer alone she has three new companions. Nearby are ostriches that roam alongside them. The giraffes have plenty of space to roam and you can pay a little extra to stand in a hut and feed them. The big cats have their very own spacious and equally amazing exhibit. The rest of the nation is in awe of the new exhibit that Dallas has created to give Jenny and her new friends a better quality of life.
Since the Giants of the Savannah exhibit in Dallas is the only one of its kind in the entire US, cities like New York and Cincinnati have been interested in researching the new exhibit. The animals are rotated and allowed to roam where previous animals roamed earlier that day. The elephants will be tracked with lightweight ankle monitors to see where they prefer to hang out and how much exercise they are getting on a daily basis. The exhibit was created to mimic life in the Savannah and because of this many of the animals are showing a great improvement in their attitude. Yes, I said attitude. It has been said that the animals are all a little happier and more energized. Perhaps its because they get to stretch their legs and best of all sniff around where their prey or predators just roamed. It is bringing out their instincts which we all know is a good thing.
Now that Jenny the elephant is no longer being kept in an outdated, cramped, poor excuse for an exhibit I can rest easy that she and her new companions are not living a sad life anymore. I know now that at least the Elephants at the Dallas zoo are being treated like the kings and queens of the Savannah that they are. I highly recommend the new and improved Dallas Zoo. So if you are planning on visiting my city take the time to visit the Dallas zoo. You will be happy you did and remember to say hi to my favorite Elephant, Jenny.
