VOICE FOR THE ANIMALS FOUNDATION APPLAUDS JUDGE SEGAL'S RULING IN FAVOR OF THE PLAINTIFFS IN L.A. ZOO LAWSUIT

On Tuesday, July 24, the 5 year lawsuit seeking to close the LA Zoo elephant exhibit ended when the Judge ruled in favor of plaintiffs actor Robert Culp (deceased) and real estate broker Aaron Leider. Judge Segal stated in his 60 page decision, "All is not well at the Los Angeles Zoo. Contrary to what the zoo's representatives may have told the Los Angeles City Council in order to get construction of the $42 million exhibit approved and funded, the elephants are not healthy, happy or thriving."
