T.V. Host Pledges Money To Bring Elephant To San Andreas

Sponsored by:

San Andreas, CA — Another elephant may be moving to San Andreas thanks to financial help from former “Price is Right” host Bob Barker.

The Associated Press reports Barker has pledged $1.5 million to move an elephant from the Los Angeles Zoo to the Ark 2000 facility operated by the Performing Animal Welfare Society (PAWS).

The Los Angeles City Council will vote tomorrow on whether to expand its elephant enclosure. If the project is nixed then Billy, a 23-year-old Asian elephant will likely move to San Andreas. The Sanctuary currently has nine elephants, three thanks to financial help from Barker.
