Actress Lily Tomlin, known for her efforts to help free elephants from zoos, will be speaking in support of the elephant documentary Elephants and Man: A Litany of Tragedy, which will be shown in Hollywood on January 20, 2011. The film is produced by Voice for the Animals (VFTA) Foundation’s Melya Kaplan, and it looks at the cruelty and suffering endured by elephants in captivity. Tomlin has been involved in efforts to free the Los Angeles Zoo’s Billy the elephant, which has resulted in an upcoming trial. In 2007, VFTA filed a lawsuit against the Los Angeles Zoo for its cruel treatment of elephants, 14 of whom have died under the zoo’s care.
