Danish Government buys elephants from circus

September 10, 2019

The government in Denmark has bought four elephants from Danish circuses.

They have been purchased in order to give them a proper retirement.

The elephants are names Ramboline, Lara, Djunga and Jenny, They are the last four circus elephants in the country.

The government paid around 11 million Danish krone – about $2.7 million NZD for the animals.

The Danish government wants to lead an initiative to introduce a total ban on wild animals in circuses later this year.

They also said they are not yet sure where the elephants will live but anyone who have a suitable space should make themselves known.
