Billy the Elephant Gets Government Housing

Hosted by

The Los Angeles City Council stopped construction on the $42-million Pachyderm Forest at the Los Angeles Zoo.  Animal advocates said it was too expensive and too small, even for Billy, the only elephant left. But after months of passionate public debate, that same City Council voted today, 11-to-4, to continue the project, as we hear from Carla Hall, staff writer for the Los Angeles Times.
