Mister D: I just thought this was cute. Told you gays infiltrate all animal groups. That’s the way God planned it, I truly believe. This just takes it over the top.
â€œGayâ€ Elephant Draws Ire of Polish Politician
Submitted by Jeff G on Saturday, 11 April 2009
A Polish politician is up in arms after his local zoo acquired Ninio, a male, 10 year old elephant who prefers the company of other male elephants. Michal Grzes, a conservative councilor in the city of Poznan in western Poland, is miffed that the zoo spent 37 million zlotys (about $11 million U.S.) for what he refers to as a â€œgayâ€ elephant (not that thereâ€™s anything wrong with that).
A zoo official says that male elephants are too young at 10 years of age to determine their sexual orientation, since elephants donâ€™t reach sexual maturity until 14, however Ninio has shown a fondness for apple martinis and Bette Midler tunes. [via Yahoo news]
