NEW YORK (1010 WINS) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is on the case of Happy the Elephant.

Happy the Elephant lives at the Bronx Zoo but some people think he isn’t happy there.

These supporters are trying to get Happy moved to a sanctuary where she can wander with others of her species.

Happy has been at the zoo since 1977 and is 48 years old.

Ocasio-Cortez says she’s looking into what she can do to get Happy moved.

The Bronx Zoo says such a move would be dangerous for Happy given her age.
