Before using the phrase 'elephant in the room', we need to check that we're not standing in a space that has been constructed to house one of those magnificent beasts... like a zoo - although even this concept is controversial. There are, after all, lots of people who think animals should be free to roam in their natural environments. Which makes it even more relevant that you start a discussion about the issue that everyone else is trying so hard to avoid mentioning. If you take a bold step, you can clear the air today.
