How Many "Wrongs" Can You Find in this Post?
USFWS - "The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and the Tupelo City Police are investigating the shooting of an Asian elephant in Tupelo, Mississippi, who was touring with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus. The incident occurred in the early hours of April 9, 2013 outside the Bancorp South Arena. Ringling Bros. veterinary and handling experts have examined the female elephant, Carol, and found a dime-sized point of entry on the elephant's shoulder. The elephant is active, mobile and comfortable and is being treated with medication. Carol will recuperate off the touring unit under veterinary care."
Ironically, I read this article immediately after learning about THIS.
