Recently, Her Serene Highness Princess Stephanie of Monaco gave an interview regarding her two Elephants, Baby and Nepal, which she rescued from the Tete d’Or Zoo in Lyon, France earlier this year. The two elephants were destined to be put down after government officials in Lyon believed they were infected with Tuberculosis.
After an international outcry from dozens of animal rights groups, who believed the two beautiful elephants could be saved, Princess Stephanie offered to take them in. Today, Baby and Nepal are living “…38,000 square foot enclosure with a huge wooden shelter and a pool from them to drink from and cool off in…” at Roc Agel, the country home/retreat for the members of the Princely family of Monaco.
Bravo, Stephanie! 🙂
