Comments / pictures

No stolen elephant from the Tripoli Zoo! "It is patently untrue, Tripoli Zoo Director Anas Ali al-Aghab confirmed Sunday when the Toronto Star went knocking for answers. Tripoli’s last elephant, in fact, died two years ago of old age."

“It is really just a joke, I think. Tripoli is so full of rumours,” said Aghab. “But there’s nothing we can do about it. All we care about right now is caring for the animals until things become normal.”
