What's the Truth About Woodland Park Zoo's Elephants?

I live in Seattle where Woodland Park Zoo is located. I just don't know what to think.

On the one hand, Woodland Park is very proud of its elephant conservation program and its elephant residents.

On the other hand, Friends of Woodland Park Zoo Elephants says they are not well-treated and should be in a sanctuary.

I'm definitely open to feedback. Elephants need to roam and I don't particularly like having any animal gawked at in a zoo....but I don't really know if Woodland Park is worse than any other zoo. I used to think they were better than many....
