El Paso - If you have not been to the El Paso zoo lately, then check out the new elephant.3
Actually, it's the next thing to it - an elephant sculpture.
The life-sized elephant at the zoo is on a mission.
It is calling attention to the fact that African elephants are still being killed for their ivory tusks.
The sculpture is more than nine feet tall and was made by weaving strips of recycled tires over a galvanized steel frame.
