She hasn't seen another elephant for the past three years, and she's been in a zoo for over half a century.
Her name is Lucky.
Now 56 and the only elephant at the San Antonio Zoo, Lucky was taken from the wild as a baby back in the 1960s. She was shipped to the U.S., where she has lived in captivity ever since.
In 2013, Boo, Lucky's last companion, passed away. Even though it's against Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) guidelines, for the past three years, Lucky has lived totally alone.
Elephants are generally highly social animals who, in the wild, live in herds of up to 100 other elephants.
"Our position is that by housing Lucky in solitude, for a species as social as elephants are, it's unequivocally harmful to her," Carney Anne Nasser, senior counsel at the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF), told The Dodo. ALDF is currently pursuing a lawsuit on Lucky's behalf. "ALDF's goal is to ensure that Lucky gets to spend her last years at a sanctuary, in a more appropriate habitat with other elephants, where she can have a meaningful existence, and not just be a way of selling tickets."
