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.

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.

I believe that was in China and they weren't happy about it either.

It didn't choose it at all! The elephant was forced to become gay by the Vermont Legislature, PFLAG, Hollywood liberals and other anti-AmericanPolish conspirators!

Can't the elephant do artificial insemination anyway, if they need baby elephants? Isn't that what the do with the pandas anyway?

Can we sent rainbow present to Ninio? What does a elephant really need?
