The notorious Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) has reportedly approved the keeping of 53-year-old Lucky, a female Asian elephant, in solitary confinement at the San Antonio Zoo. This is in spite of the facts that

b) there have been widespread protests from experts and members of the public alike
c) solitary confinement violates the AZA’s own guidelines, which require that elephants be kept in groups of three.
