City of Joplin does not condone using circus elephants for tornado cleanup
(From the city of Joplin)
There is information in various media outlets showing circus elephants being used clean up in Joplin after the tornado disaster. Picadilly Circus made the initial offer to the City, and the City declined the offer.
Parks Director Chris Cotten appreciates everyone’s efforts, but if people see this occurring, it is not condoned under the direction of the City.
A complete list of tornado recovery information can be found on the City of Joplin website. http://www.joplinmo.org/tornadoinfo.cfm
