BOB BARKER BRINGS ELEPHANTS TO CALIFORNIA SANCTUARY

 
BOB BARKER BRINGS ELEPHANTS TO CALIFORNIA SANCTUARY

 When it comes to shelling out for animal welfare, the price is always right for Bob Barker. On Monday, former The Price Is Right host and animal rights activist Barker welcomed three African elephants -- Iringa, Thika and Toka -- to their new home at the Performing Animal Welfare Society’s ARK 2000 compound in California’s San Andreas Hills. Barker (89) footed the nearly $1 million bill to bring the elephants on the 50-hour truck journey from Canada’s Toronto Zoo to PAWS’ sanctuary, which provides elephants with "hundreds of acres of varied natural terrain to roam, lakes and pools to bathe in, and elephant barns equipped with heated stalls and therapeutic Jacuzzis." Love that Bob. He said that every last dime that he owns will be spent on causes close to his heart. "I want to die broke."
