Air Force May Fly Elephant From Alaska to California

They would be using a C-17 Globemaster to fly Maggie the elephant to an animal sanctuary.

The Air Force is looking at a request to fly an elephant aboard a C-17 Globemaster from Alaska to California.

The Alaska Zoo in Anchorage needs to move Maggie, an 8,000-pound pachyderm from the zoo to Northern California where Maggie will take up residence at an animal sanctuary.

The zoo has asked if the Air Force would fly the mission. As of Tuesday, the request was still under consideration, an Air Force spokesman said.

I hope they do it. If nothing else, it's good PR.
