ANCHORAGE – Now that it's decided Maggie the Elephant will be going to PAWS, the people for the ethical treatment of animals is making good on a pledge of support.

PETA is giving $10-thousand to the northern California sanctuary for Maggie's care. It made the offer this summer.

The Alaska Zoo, meantime, turned down PAWS offer of $100-thousand for choosing its location. The Alaska Zoo says finding a new home for Maggie was never about money.
