No more elephant rides? Bill moving forward could impact Natural Bridge Zoo
Under bill, contact with elephants would be illegal
ROCKBRIDGE COUNTY, Va. – A bill that could have a big impact on a popular local attraction is working its way through the General Assembly.
This week, the House Agriculture, Conservation and Natural Resources Committee passed a bill designating elephants ‘dangerous’ captive animals.
If the bill becomes law, people would no longer be allowed to ride the elephant at Natural Bridge Zoo in Rockbridge County.
A previous version of the bill excluded elephants from the list of dangerous captive animals.
