This is a place that is not quite 2 hours from us. It is located in Quittman, AR. When we last visited (these photos are from 2007) there were 7 elephants there. They had all come from different places, mostly retired performers.
They are run solely on donations and have done tours for a small donation fee. On the tour, we walk the grounds and get to see where and how the elephants are cared for.
This one was a brand new little one when we went years ago... and he was PLAYFUL!!
