I have not made this petition but, it appears a petition has been made with over 1000 subscribers to relocate Duchess, the only elephant in Devon, to another part of the UK. Some think Duchess is unhappy in the current location she's in; but it's vice versa. Paignton Zoo says if Duchess is introduced to more elephants, it'd be bad for her because of her poor eyesight. Duchess is Paignton's last elephant after Gay's death in 2010. The petition will not stop until 5000 subscribe. Both elephants came from Longleat in 1970.

All Duchess needs is hope, not a sanctuary. But Duchess still has a few decades at Paignton, living more than other capative elephants.
