Maggie the elephant pushes a ball Monday in her enclosure at the Alaska Zoo in Anchorage. Alaska's only elephant has been confined too long in dangerous conditions, animal advocates said after the 7,500 pound animal had to be hoisted to her feet Sunday because she could not get up on her own. Anchorage firefighters lifted Maggie after she had lain down for 12 hours at the Alaska Zoo, renewing calls for the elephant to be transferred to a warmer climate.
