How Much Does It Cost To Move An Elephant?

from the CP via CTV,

Former hockey pugilist Georges Laraque is offering up $100,000 if the City of Edmonton will move Lucy, a zoo elephant he says is suffering from cold and isolation.

Laraque has written a letter to Edmonton Mayor Stephen Mandel, saying he will put the money toward a new downtown hockey rink or to other projects if the city will move the 35-year-old Asian elephant to a warm-weather elephant sanctuary.

With Laraque playing the role of Big Enos Burdett, all that is left is a TransAm with T-Tops running blocker and a semi-Truck.
