Judge to decide on hold of L.A. zoo elephants
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A judge scheduled a court date to decide whether a temporary restraining order should be issued to prevent the Los Angeles Zoo from bringing in new elephants.
The judge said on Wednesday that the hearing will be on Oct. 25.
A 2007 lawsuit alleged that the zoo inadequately cared for elephants and that their enclosure was too small. It also claimed a new exhibit would be a waste of taxpayer money.
Currently there is only one elephant at the L.A. Zoo.
