PETA had a scientist speak on their behalf in a city council meeting regarding a proposed ordinance that would increase the amount of space in Chicago zoos or circuses traveling through Chicago. Best quote of the day: "We don't deal with elephant issues on a day-to-day basis in our neighborhoods, and we want to dig deeper into the issues" The fact that the three elephants in question are named Tatima, Peaches and Wankie is enough to make me like this story, as is.
