CALGARY - Officials at the Calgary Zoo say an elephant statue modelled after a Hindu god will stay right where it is.
Concerned Christians Canada has sent a letter to zoo officials, asking that the sculpture be removed.
The group says that such religious symbols are inappropriate.
Newton, a zoo official, says the statue is dedicated to honouring Asian
culture because it's set up near the Asian elephant enclosure.
says the symbolic elephant statue has a connection with Asian culture,
much like the bald eagle has come to represent the United States.
