Gay elephant sparks anger in Poland

Michal Grzes, a conservative councillor in the city of Poznan in western Poland, said the animal preferred male company and would probably not procreate.

He said it meant the city's massive investment in a new home for the animals had been a waste of time.


"We didn't pay 37 million zlotys (£7.6 million) for the largest elephant house in Europe to have a gay elephant live there," said Mr Grzes, who is from the right-wing opposition Law and Justice party.

"We were supposed to have a herd, but as Ninio prefers male friends over females how will he produce offspring?" said.

The head of the Poznan zoo said 10-year-old Ninio may be too young to decide whether he prefers males or females as elephants only reach sexual maturity at 14.

Everything about this story is stupid. Particularly Grzes response to the "gay" elephant.

I'm sure it's just a phase.

Wait, I thought these bigots claimed that gay behavior never occurred in animals as proof it isn't "natural" behavior...

Exactly. I guess the elephant chose to be gay. Look at how it loves those flowers.

Poor elephant might as well kill it for being sinful. It's all those damn gay bars in Poland!

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.
