the elephants were in great health, and they seemed very happy. however, there was concern that their habitat was too small for them, so they decided to do the right thing and move them to an elephant sanctuary out west somewhere. and no the elephant isn't sick... he's just taking a dust bath
the exibit wasn't big enough for the elephants they had. so they decided to relocate them where they'd have open space. the elephants seemed really happy at the zoo, but the caretakers wanted more for them.
