Executive Committee to Receive Elephant Transfer Status Report

At the 25-Sep-2012 meeting of the Board of Management of the Toronto Zoo, the zoo's CEO John Tracogna and the zoo's senior veterinarian Dr. Graham Crawshaw presented the Elephant Transfer Status report in which four major issues were identified: 1. Permits, 2. Final Transportation Plan, 3. Crates and Training, and 4. Medical and Health Records.

Prior to the presentation, the public gave input.

After lengthy discussion, the Zoo Board passed a motion "That the Board direct the Chief Executive Officer to forward the (September 25, 2012) memorandum on the elephant transfer status to the Executive Committee, for its meeting on October 9, 2012, and thereon to City Council for consideration." See: 2012-09-25 Minutes - Board of Management of the Toronto Zoo.

However, the agenda of the 9-Oct-2012 Executive Committee meeting does not have an item regarding the report. So, it may be at the 5-Nov-2012 meeting when the report is considered.
