There's a new elephant sanctuary in Brazil, the first and only in South America.

The first two elephants, Maia and Guida, arrived about a month ago. The poor things were circus elephants. But at least five South American countries have banned performing elephants, so more residents will be arriving soon.

It's being set up by one of the two people who started the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee, Scott Blais. He and his wife moved to Brazil to open this new sanctuary.

They usual post a new video of the girls every day. I don't have pets of my own so I pretend Maia and Guida are mine. I love them.

I wish more elephants would be taken out of zoos and circuses in the U.S. and sent to sanctuary. Unfortunately the American Zoo Association is just about to import some 18 or so young elephants from Tanzania -- captured in the wild, separated from their family groups. Damn it.

And if anyone out there is a petition signer type of person, there is a very sick lonely needy elephant at a zoo in Mexico City that desperately needs to be moved to sanctuary:
