Its a wrap folks. Starting November 1st the Buffalo Zoo will be sending both their elephants to New Orleans. I didn't know they had names but they do, Jothi and Surapa will be leaving and they will not be replaced.  As these elephants continue to age the zoo doesn't have access to the handle the aging process.

Accoring to WGRZ,

"A new, much larger state-of-the-art facility in New Orleans designed to care for aging elephants," Dandes said. "The Buffalo Zoo is fully accredited by AZA taking excellent care of all of their animals," said Dr. Jeff Wyatt, the incoming AZA chairman.

So if you want to see the Elephants at the Zoo you have a very limited time before they move away from Buffalo.
