Georges Laraque for Elephants

Ex-NHL player Georges Laraque offers an Edmonton zoo $100,000 to free elephant.

Vegan Georges Laraque, an ex-National Hockey League (NHL) player for the Edmonton Oilers, is offering the city of Edmonton, Alberta, $100,000 in exchange for the relocation of Lucy, an elephant in captivity at the Edmonton Valley Zoo, to a warm-weather sanctuary. Laraque told Edmonton Mayor Stephen Mandel in a public letter that “Lucy’s serious health problems and the signs of mental distress that she has long exhibited are reasons enough to send her to a sanctuary in a warmer climate, but I hope that my proposal creates even more incentive.” Laraque became vegan after watching the documentary Earthlings, and is currently Deputy Leader for the Green Party of Canada.
