I'm very proud of Christie and Hogle Zoo staff for their ability to successfully
ensure that the baby is delivered safely while keeping Mom healthy. It's proof
that these elephants receive great care and their staff does everything they can
for these elephants. There is no easy or cheap solution to elephant
conservation in the wild, and achievements like this baby will ensure elephants
remain on the planet regardless of their fate in the wild.
Hooray for Hogle Zoo! It's good to know that the new baby is born into an AZA
zoo, so she'll be pampered! I love what the zoo's done to redo their old
exhibits, and I'm excited to see the new baby!
Oh people, give the Zoo a break. Just enjoy the cute, little, baby elephant and
It's not sad. We have a new elephant!
This baby elephant will bring in the crowds. But at what cost to her?
It is still nice to have a new birth.
Very sad - this baby will never know what it's like to truly be an elephant.
While zoos waste millions of dollars breeding a handful of elephants for
display, thousands of elephants could be saved in their native homes for a
fraction of that money.
what a priveleged little baby - to be born into a setting of care and
appreciation rather than to be hunted to extinction
clm, I'm a bit torn on animals in zoos as well. On the one hand,
elephants don't have to worry about predators and poachers while in the zoo. On
the other hand, who wants to live a sheltered life?Anyway, it is a
joyous occasion having a new baby elephant born!
Poor littel baby - born into slavery for Human Entertainment and Zoo Bucks $$$$$

What is it about babies of any species that makes us go, "Awwww?" This one is
no exception. What a cutie!I do have mixed feelings about animals
in zoos. I love to go see them but at the same time wish they could experience
their lives in nature without being confined.Congratulations to Mom
Christie and helpers! It is obvious that Christie and her baby are loved by
I think that's a zoo photograph actually.
That is so cute! I can't wait to go see the new baby! It is always fun to hear
some good news every once in a while too! :)
What a cute picture. That baby elephant too darn cute. I love Deseret News and
all their animal photographs. They are all worth viewing. Good article, too.
I hope all goes well and that the mother is able to bond with the baby in a zoo
Seems like a lot of new baby animals have been born at the zoo this year! It is
